About 1,800 Le Creuset Glass Lids have been recalled, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced. The CPSC is advising consumers to stop using the Defective Products immediately and notes that it is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a Recalled Product.
The Le Creuset Glass Lids, which were manufactured in China, were imported by Le Creuset of America Inc., of Early Branch, South Carolina.
The glass lids can crack or break during use, posing a laceration hazard to consumers. To date, Le Creuset has received five reports of lids breaking in use. No injuries have been reported.
This Product Recall involves Le Creuset Glass Lids sold after October 2010. The clear glass lids measure between about 9 inches (24 cm) and about 12 inches (30 cm) and have â€œLe Creusetâ€ stamped on the metal handles. The affected models include: 24cm glass lid; 28cm glass lid; and 30cm glass lid, including 30cm glass lids sold as part of the Le Creuset Forged Hard-Anodized 30cm Shallow Casserole with Lid set.
The recalled Le Creuset Glass Lids were sold at Le Creuset and other retailers nationwide from October 2010 through January 2011 for $20 for individual glass lids and $160 when part of a casserole set.
The CPSC is advising consumers to not only stop using these lids immediately but to also return them to Le Creuset for a full refund of the purchase price.
