Cost Plus Glass Bubble Knob Recall Issued Due to Laceration Hazard
More than 250,000 glass drawer knobs have been recalled after the manufacturer received multiple reports that they are breaking and exposing sharp pieces of glass that may cause lacerations to the fingers and hands.
The Glass Bubble Knobs recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on June 11, after the manufacturer received at least five reports involving injuries associated with the knobs, after sharp shards of glass were exposed.
The recall includes an estimated 251,400 glass bubble knobs used on cabinet doors and drawers. The knobs were sold in two sizes, the larger measuring 1.25 inches in diameter and the smaller measuring about .75 inches in diameter. They were sold in six colors including blue, amethyst, pink, green, smoke and clear. The glass knobs are mounted on top of bronze hardware that attaches to the drawer or cabinets.
