June 12, 2014 — Cost Plus World Market is recalling over 250,000 glass bubble knobs that are used in cabinet doors and drawers because they can break.
According to the recall notification:
“The knobs can break and expose sharp pieces of glass, posing a risk of laceration to the consumer.”
The manufacturer has received five reports of broken knobs resulting in five reports of hand and/or finger lacerations. Consumers who own the glass knobs should return them to Cost Plus World Market or World Market store for a full refund.
Products included in the recall were sold nationwide from October 2010 through April 2014 for between $2 and $4. The knobs were sold in two sizes and six colors, including: blue, amethyst, pink, green, smoke and clear. The larger knobs are about 1.25 inches in diameter. The smaller knobs are about .75 inches in diameter. The glass knobs are attached to bronze-colored hardware.
The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends that customers with the recalled knobs should immediately stop using them.
