A range of enamelled cast iron frypans and skillets has been recalled in the US as the products pose a burn risk to users.
The recall affects 1,500 Castalon products, supplied by Californian company Tabletops Unlimited. According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, the enamel coating on the pans can crack and break off after only a few uses. One consumer has reported a splinter of enamel jumping off the pan when in use, causing a minor burn.
The cookware is imported from China and was sold nationwide in the States at Bed, Bath & Beyond and Wegmans from May to September this year. The recalled frypans have an enamel coating inside and out and come in a range of colours, and had a retail price of around $30.
Owners of any of the pans have been advised to stop using them immediately.
