Recalled Cookware Sets Pose Burn Hazard. Cost Plus World Market has recalled about 300 Stainless Steel Cookware sets due to burn hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.
The recalled Stainless Steel Cookware set were made in India by Kraftwares of Mahalaxmi, Mumbai and were distributed by Cost Plus Inc., of Oakland, California
