Macy’s Martha Stewart Cookware Recall Issued After Rivets Fire Out, Injure Consumers
More than 100,000 frying pans sold by Macy’s, as part of a Martha Stewart cookware set, are being recalled due to a risk that parts may pop out suddenly and cause injuries.
The Macy’s Martha Stewart Cookware Set recall was announced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on Tuesday, after reports from consumers indicate that the metal discs covering the rivets on the frying pans have popped off and hit consumers, causing multiple injuries.
The rivets attach the handles to the frying pan and are covered by stainless steel discs. So far, the CPSC has received at least seven reports of injuries to consumers from the metal pieces popping off the pans and hitting users. Injuries include, bruises, burns and welts.

The recall affects about 121,000 Martha Stewart Collection 10-piece stainless steel cookware sets. The recall specifically notes the 8 and 10-inch stainless steel frying pans that are part of the 10-piece set are the pans in question. The recall affects only the two frying pans with the following UPC numbers found on the product packaging or receipt; 0733003518899, 0733003623326, 0766370840959, and 0766370980334.
Other items sold as part of the set are a 1-quart covered saucepan, 2-quart covered sauce pan, 3-quart covered saucepan and 6-quart covered stockpot.
The Martha Stewart Stainless Steel Cookware sets were sold at Macy’s in stores and online for $170. They were also sold at Military Exchanges for $90. The pans were sold at both places between January 2011 and September 2015.
The CPSC warns consumers to immediately stop using both the 8 and 10-inch frying pans. However, the other items are not affected and may still be used without fear of injury.
Consumers can return the frying pans for store credit for the full value of the two frying pans at Macy’s. Sets purchased at a Military Exchange can also be returned to the Military Exchange for a full refund.
