Le Creuset Recalls Glass Lids That Can Break

Kitchenware company Le Creuset of America Inc. recalled about 1,800 glass lids after five reports of them breaking while being used, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

Le Creuset products are sold at upscale stores and kitchen shops including Williams-Sonoma, Kitchen Kapers, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, Wegmans, and Bed, Bath & Beyond. The CPSC said the recalled lids were sold nationwide.

No one has been hurt by using the lids, sold from October 2010 through January 2011 for $20 each, or $160 when sold as part of a casserole set, the CPSC said. Consumers should stop using the lids and return them to Le Creuset for a full refund.Included in the recall are Le Creuset glass lids sold after October 2010. The China-made clear glass lids are between 9-inches and 12-inches in size and have "Le Creuset" stamped on the metal handles.

Models affected by the recall are the 24cm glass lid, 28cm glass lid and 30cm glass lid -- including the 30cm glass lids sold as part of the Le Creuset Forged Hard-Anodized 30cm Shallow Casserole with Lid set.

Consumers can email or call Le Creuset at (866) 747-0186 weekdays between 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern Time.

it is great that Le Creuset is recalling the lids that can break, it would not be with out great cost to them. The cookware that they make is of the best cookware I have used. It impresses me when companies have high enough standards.
