The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a voluntary recall of 1.7 million pots and pans due to burn and fire hazard dangers they may pose. Hy Cite Enterpirses has agreed to the voluntary recall of the Royal Prestige 9-Ply Thermal Wall Cookware brand. If a voluntary recall had made in this case, a man might not have lost his life.
According to the announcement released by the CPSC, the cookware can collapse, crimp or severely deform when exposed to heat, posing a burn and fire hazard to the consumer and nearby property. There have been 1,136 reports of cookware collapsing, crimping or deforming, including one report of a person being spattered with hot oil when the pan collapsed inward while cooking.
