2 million Calphalon knives recalled due to laceration hazard

Cutlery maker Calphalon is recalling two million knives due to a laceration hazard.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the blades can break during use, increasing the risk. Calphalon has received 27 reports of finger or hand lacerations, including four that required stitches, in addition to about 3,150 reports of broken knives.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cutlery and contact Calphalon for a replacement cutlery product.

The company can be reached at 800-809-7267 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, or online at Calphalon.com. Click on "Calphalon Contemporary Cutlery Recall Information" for more information.
