June 12, 2014 — The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a recall for about 251,400 glass bubble knobs sold by Cost Plus World Market because they can cut a person’s hand and fingers.
The knobs are designed to be attached to drawers or cabinets. The interior of the knob consists of bubbles inside a glass sphere. According to the recall:
“The knobs can break and expose sharp pieces of glass, posing a risk of laceration to the consumer.”
Five consumers have reported lacerations to their hand or fingers after using the knobs.
The glass bubble knobs come in two sizes and six colors, including: blue, amethyst, pink, green, smoke, and clear. The larger knobs are about 1.25-inches in diameter and the smaller knobs are about 0.75 inches in diameter. The knobs are attached to bronze-colored hardware. They were sold nationwide between October 2010 and April 2014 for between $2 and $4.
If you own a recalled glass bubble knob, stop using it immediately. You can return it to the store for a refund. If you need more information, contact Cost Plus Management Services toll-free at 877-967-5362 or visit them online at www.worldmarket.com and click on “Product Recalls.”
