Christmas ornaments that QVC sold for the holidays have been recalled after customers complained that they had cut their fingers on the decorations.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission issued the recall of 25,000 box sets of the Cheryl’s Jingle Bell ornaments with cookies and confections.
The agency reported that the cutouts on the ornaments “have sharp metal edges that pose a laceration hazard to consumers.” QVC received 140 reports of people cutting themselves while handling the ornaments, including four that required stitches.
The CPSC said:
This recall involves Cheryl’s Jingle Bell ornaments that were sold with 64 cookies and confections. The round aluminum ornaments measure approximately 4 inches in diameter, have four snowflake cutouts and were sold in a set of eight units per box (two each of red, green, gold and silver).
QVC and QVC.com sold the ornaments last November through December for $55.
Customers were told to stop using the ornaments and to return them to QVC for a full refund.
