Calphalon is recalling 2 million knives because the blades have been breaking away from the handles and cutting people, the company says.
So far, the company has received 27 reports of finger or hand lacerations, including four cuts that were so serious they required stitches, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission. Calphalon has also heard 3,150 reports of broken knives.
“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cutlery and contact Calphalon for a replacement cutlery product,” according to the safety commission’s website.
