Kirkland Sauté Pans and Glass Lids Recalled

On November 28, 2012, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported that Kirkland Signature Six-Quart Pans and glass lids were voluntarily recalled for a laceration hazard.  The pans were manufactured in Thailand, distributed by Meyer Marketing Co, Ltd, of Macau, and sold exclusively at Costco Wholesale stores.

The CPSC reports that about 12,900 pans and lids are affected by this recall.  Consumers need to stop using these products immediately.  

The pan’s lid is made of tempered glass, and the glass has cracked, broken, or shattered on numerous occasions.  Meyer Marketing has received 97 reports of the glass lids breaking shattering so far, but no injuries have been reported.  

The pans and lids were sold in the San Francisco Bay area and Northeast states from May 2012 to October 2012 for approximately $35.  

The specific product being recalled is the Kirkland Signature six-quart, black, hard-anodized aluminum sauté pans that come with glass lids.  The tempered glass lid has a stainless steel rim and handle, and the pan is about 3 inches deep and about 12 inches in diameter.  The words “Kirkland Signature,” “6 QT/5.6 L,” and “Made in Thailand” appear on the bottom of the pans.  

Consumers need to stop using this product immediately and return the pan and lid to Costco for a full refund.  Consumers are reminded that it is illegal to attempt to resell or resell a recalled product.  

You can contact Costco at (877) 782-8242 from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday through Friday for more information on the recall.  You can also visit Costco’s website or the official government website of the Consumer Product Safety Commission for more information about the recall.
