Laceration Risk Prompts Recall of 218,000 Cocktail Glasses

Posted on

Cocktail glasses are being recalled by the Toledo, Ohio-based Libbey Glass because of a possible laceration hazard these items could create.  218,000 glasses under the Bristol Valley brand with a model number of 8555SR are impacted by the recall, which was issued upon the discovery that this glassware could break during usage, a situation that could create jagged edges that cut the user.  16 incidents have come to the fore, and one of those even reportedly contributed to a laceration injury.  These items were available for commercial and personal use across the country from the start of 2013 until last month, and owners of said glasses are being asked to cease usage and seek a refund from Libbey Glass.
