On September 29, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported that Macy’s had voluntarily recalled Martha Stewart Oil and Vinegar Burettes. The products are conical clear glass containers. They have a square base and a metal spout for pouring oil or vinegar from the top. When purchasing, the number 608356787608 was printed on a label linked to the product. In addition, a clear label with the Martha Steward logo has been placed near the base of the product. The recall concerns approximately 26,150 burettes.

Recalls often occur when there is a threat to consumer safety. In this case, the reason for the recall is due to the danger posed by the product if it breaks. According to the recall statement, “the glass part of the burettes may break during use, posing a risk of laceration.” This recall follows Macy’s receipt of at least six reports of broken glass cruets. On three occasions, the rupture resulted in lacerations, two of which ultimately required stitches.
If you have the recalled item, Macy’s wants you to take action. The recall calls on any consumer who has the burettes at home to immediately stop using them due to the risk of injury. To obtain a refund on the recalled product, you can either return it to a Macy’s store or contact Macy’s to return the item using free shipping. According to the recall statement, you will get a full refund.
