Certain items of Paula Deen hammered cast iron cookware distributed by Meyer Trading of Hong Kong and sold in the US by QVC have been recalled there.
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall of the Chinese-made cookware, which can crack or shatter, posing burn and laceration hazards to consumers.
The recall involves about 51,000 Paula Deen 11in cast iron grill pans and griddles. The cookware is black and has the Paula Deen logo and product size engraved on the bottom.
QVC and Meyer Trading have received 79 reports of the cookware cracking or shattering while heated. One consumer reported a minor burn injury to an arm. The CPSC says that consumers should stop using the products immediately.
The cookware was sold through QVC’s televised shopping programmes, its website and stores from October 2007 up until July this year for between $35 and $55.
