Minnesota-based Fingerhut Direct Marketing is recalling about 9,000 cookware sets because the handles can break, creating a burn danger to users, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
The recall affects Chef's Mark 15-piece cookware sets with the model number 515 and the product code H6637.
The products were sold through Fingerhut's catalogues and website from January 2008 through October 2008 for about $80 US.
The company has learned of six related incidents including three reports of minor burns.
The products were made in China.
Consumers should stop using the cookware and contact the company for a free repair kit.
