Libbey Glass Recalls Cocktail Glasses Due to Laceration Hazard
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a recall of over 200,000 Bristol Valley Cocktail Glasses with Sheer Rim from Libbey Glass, a Toledo, Ohio-based glassware supplier that sells promotional as well as consumer products. The glasses can break unexpectedly, posing a laceration hazard.
This recall involves the USA-manufactured Bristol Valley cocktail glasses with sheer rims (model 8555SR). The glasses are made of clear, colorless glass in a 7.75 oz. cocktail design with a thin rim. The glasses measure about 6.25" high, 3.25" wide at the base, and 4.25" wide at the top. They were sold individually and in 24-piece cartons. The glasses were sold through commercial customers for use in foodservice establishments, at the Libbey Outlet Store in Shreveport, La., and at various independent liquor stores nationwide from January 2013 through November 2013 for between $1 and $4 per glass.
Libbey has received 16 reports from commercial customers of glasses breaking, including one report of a minor laceration to a restaurant patron when the glass broke during use.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled glasses and return them to the store where purchased for a refund. Commercial customers should contact Libbey Glass Inc. to arrange for destruction of the product and receipt of a credit, refund or replacement.
