Cooking Sets with Glass Lids Recalled for Laceration
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission has announced a voluntary recall of
the ALEX Super Cooking Sets. Consumers should
stop using the products immediately unless otherwise
instructed. The glass pot lids can break, posing
a laceration hazard to children.
ALEX has received a report of a
2 ½ -year-old girl who cut her foot from
the broken glass from one of the lids. The cut
recall involves children’s Super Cooking
Sets, a 12-piece stainless steel set with miniature
pots that have clear glass lids. Each set comes
with a pasta pot with glass lid, stockpot with
glass lid, frying pan, two potholders and utensils.
The cooking sets were sold in a white box with
a clear plastic window. “ALEX” and
“Super Cooking Set” are printed on
the box. A red sticker labeled “unbreakable
glass” is affixed to the pot lids. Cooking
sets manufactured after April 1, 2006 have stainless
steel lids and are not included in this recall.
The products were sold at discount
department and specialty toy stores from September
2005 through April 2006.
Consumers should take the glass
lids away from children immediately and contact
ALEX to receive a free replacement lid set.
