Y-All Listen To This: QVC Recalls Food Network Star Paula Deen’s Cast Iron Cookware

October 7, 2009

QVC has recalled some of the cast iron cookware that Food Network’s bubbly Southern cook, Paula Deen, was selling on the home shopping channel.

There are 51,000 units of the cookware in question, the Paula Deen 11-inch “hammered cast iron” grill pans and griddles.

“The recalled cookware can crack and shatter, posing burn and laceration hazards to consumers,” according to QVC’s Web site and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

No other Paula Deen cookware is involved in the recall.

The recalled products were manufactured by Meyer Trading Co.

“QVC and Meyer Trading have received 79 reports of the cookware cracking or shattering when heated,” the home shopping network said. “One consumer reported a minor burn injury to the arm.”

The recalled pots sold for between $35 and $55, and buyers can return the items for a full refund.
