Early Branch, SC—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Le Creuset of America have voluntarily recalled about 1,800 Le Creuset glass lids for laceration hazards. The CPSC announced the product recall on February 23, 2011.

The product recall was initiated after discovering that the glass lids can crack or break during use, which poses a laceration hazard to consumers.

“This 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 ‘Le Creuset’ 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.),” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to return the product to Le Creuset for a full refund of the purchase price.

For more information concerning the recall, consumers can contact Le Creuset toll-free at (866) 747-0186 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, email Le Creuset at [email protected] or visit their website at www.lecreuset.com/en-us/.
