Knife Recall on Over 2 Million Common Knives
It seems that every sharp knife I have is made by Calphalon. They have issued a recall on all their Calphalon Contemporary Knives. Over 2 million of these knives are being recalled after Calphalon received 27 reports hand injuries and approximately 3,150 reports of knife damage. These were sold at Amazon.com, J.C. Penney, Kohl’s, Macy’s and other national retailers between August 2008 and March 2016. Calphalon is issuing recall kits for affected products.
Here are the details of the recall:
