Macy's recalls 121,000 Martha Stewart cookware sets for injury hazard

Macy's department stores will recall 121,000 Martha Stewart cookware sets because the metal discs that cover the frying pan's rivets can pop off and hit consumers, posing an injury hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.

The recall involves 10-piece stainless steel cookware sets, available between January 2011 and September 2015 for about $170 at Macy's and $90 at military exchanges, the CPSC said. The agency advised that consumers immediately stop using 8- and 10-inch frying pans from the cookware set, after three injuries were reported from the flying metal disks.

"The recall was voluntary based on information provided by Macy's to the CPSC as a precaution for the safety of our customers," Macy's spokesman Jim Sluzewski told CNBC. "We have cooperated fully with the CPSC and are prepared to serve customers who return the recalled pans for refund or replacement."

Own the set?

You can get a store credit for the full value of the two frying pans by returning them to Macy's, according to the agency. Military exchange customers can return the pans for a full refund.
