Macy’s Merchandising Group has issued a massive recall of about 960,000 defective Martha Stewart Collectionâ„¢ Enamel Cast Iron Casseroles, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.
The defective Martha Stewart Collectionâ„¢ Enamel Cast Iron Casseroles were manufactured in China; imported by Macy’s Merchandising Group, New York, New York; and sold at Macy’s stores and AAFES, MCX, and NEX locations nationwide, and on macys.com, between June 2007 and June 2011 for between about $25 and $170.
The enamel coating on the cast iron casseroles can crack or break during use, which can result in the enamel cracking and flying off as a projectile object. This poses a risk of laceration or a burn hazard to the user or bystanders. To date, Macy’s has received two reports of the enamel cracking and flying off of the casseroles during use. No injuries have been reported.
This recall involves Martha Stewart Collectionâ„¢ Enamel Cast Iron Casseroles in 7-quart, 5.5-quart, and 2.75-quart sizes. The recalled casseroles have exterior enamel finishes in red, cobalt blue, sand, green, blue, white, mustard, brown, and teal; all have cream colored interior finishes. The casseroles are embossed with the words â€œMartha Stewart Collectionâ„¢â€ on the bottom of the pot as well as on the lid handle.
Macyâ€™s is advising consumers to immediately stop using the casseroles and return them to any Macy’s store for a full refund. Macyâ€™s can be reached, toll-free, 1.888.257.5949 between 10:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m., Eastern Time (ET), or at the Macy’s website at www.macys.com.
