The home shopping network QVC is recalling 7,500 skillets because the cooking pans pose a burning hazard.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, small pieces of the enamel coating can potentially come lose when the skillet is heated, popping off the skillet and causing minor burns.
The recall, announced Friday, already has five related injuries reported.
According to the CPSC news release , "This recall involves Technique brand enamel-coated 8-inch cast iron skillets with two pour spouts and a ribbed underside. The interior portion of the skillet is cream while the exterior was sold in three colors: sage, blue and red. The brand "Technique" is printed on the bottom of the pans."
The skillets were sold on QVC television programs, qvc.com and QVC retail and employee stores from August 2009 to September 2010 for $28 to $40. They were manufactured by Meyer Trading Company Limited, of Hong Kong, China.
As a North Charleston personal injury lawyer , I urge consumers to pay attention to this recall and return the pan if they own it. QVC said Friday it will be sending all known consumers instructions on how to receive a full refund. Consumers can contact QVC at (800) 367-9444, or visit the company's Web site at www.qvc.com for more information.
