Atlanta, GA — Laceration hazards have prompted the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Calphalon Corporation to voluntarily recall about 217,000 Calphalon Contemporary Cutlery Knife Sets in the United Sates and 300 knife sets in Canada. The CPSC announced the product recall on June 14, 2011.

The product recall was issued after it was discovered that the tips of the 8-inch slicing knife and/or the 8-inch bread knife can protrude through the bottom slot row on the wooden block holder, posing a laceration hazard to consumers.

“This recall involves all 17- and 21-piece Contemporary Cutlery Knife Sets with model numbers KNS17C and KNS21C. The knife sets were manufactured from August of 2007 through May 1, 2011. The recalled cutlery sets do not have model or date code markings on the wooden block although all sets have the ‘Calphalon” logo stamped in black on the front. Knife block sets with a three digit number imprinted on the underside are not included in this recall,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to contact Calphalon to receive a free repair kit for the recalled products. To order a free repair kit, consumers can contact Calphalon anytime at (800) 766-5652.

For more information concerning the product recall, consumers can contact Calphalon at (800) 809-7267 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET, or visit their Web site at www.calphalon.com.
