Cookware Recalled By Hy Cite Enterprises Due to Fire and Burn Hazard

Posted on January 17, 2013

A series of items designed to be exposed to heat is being recalled because of the danger posed to consumers when the products are exposed to heat.  If you have one of the following in your kitchen, do what’s necessary to protect your family.

The Madison, Wisconsin-based Hy Cite Enterprises announced the recall, which affects 9-Ply Thermal Wall Cookware produced by Meyer Europe.  A whopping 1.7 million items  under the Royal Prestige brand are affected by the recall, and each was available via door to door sales conducted by independent distributors.  Each single item cost from $250 to $800, but for persons buying a whole set, one could expect to pay between $800 and $3,500.

If these pans, ovens, and skillets get heated up, they’re in danger of experiencing severe deformities, including crimps or outright collapse.  The person cooking or anyone else in the vicinity could thus be burned, and a fire could also break out.  1,136 incidents have already been reported, and one of those led to an individual being brought into contact with hot oil upon the unit’s collapse.

This cookware should not be used under any circumstances.  Instead, owners are being advised to get in touch with Hy Cite, who will instruct such persons on how they can send the units back for the requisite repairs and replacements.
