A safety recall alert for breaking glass lids included in 13-piece Circulon cookware sets have been issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission. The lids for the 5-quart sauté pan in the sets may crack, break or shatter during use and pose cut hazards to consumers, warns the federal safety agency.
The CPSC says Meyer Corp., the makers of Circulon, has received 65 reports of broken lids but none involved injuries. Still, about 4,600 of the non-stick kitchen cookware sets were sold exclusively through Costco, a big-box retailer that scored well among consumers in Consumer Reports' Ratings of chain stores.
There are four glass lids included in each 13-piece Circulon set. But the current recall affects only the 11-inch glass lid which bears "IMCP1108" code stamped on its side.
Consumers are urged to discontinue use of the 11-inch Circulon glass lid and contact the company (toll-free: 800-326-3933 website: www.circulon.com) for a replacement.
