NEW YORK (AP) — More than 250,000 glass knobs are being recalled after customers complained that the knobs broke and cut their hands.

The knobs were sold exclusively at Cost Plus World Market and World Market stores around the country between October 2010 and April 2014 for $2 to $4. The knobs come in blue, amethyst, pink, green, smoke and clear colors. They have bronze-colored screws. They can be used on cabinet doors or drawers.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says there have been five reports of cuts to hands or fingers. The CPSC says customers should stop using the knobs and return them for a refund.


Consumers seeking more information can call Cost Plus at (877) 967-5362 or go online at www.worldmarket.com and click on "Product Recalls." CPSC recall information: http://1.usa.gov/1u8jbnu
