Of all the kitchen utensils out there, one might think that cake-cutters are among the ones that are the least harmful. But thanks to a few of Martha Stewart's now-recalled cake knives, at least four people who purchased the items have accidentally ended up doing more damage to themselves than the items being cut.
Over the weekend,19,000 of Macy's Martha Stewart Collection Whiteware cake knife and server sets were recalled due to handles on some instruments breaking, putting those using them at risk of cutting themselves.
A notice from the Consumer Product Safety Commission was issued on Friday for the set that includes a cake knife and a server, both of which are around 11 inches long and were previously being sold online and at Macy's locations nationwide. The report also states that Macy's has received four reports of the knives breaking, "resulting in lacerations, including cuts requiring stitches."
This isn't the first time Macy's has issued a recall for Martha Stewart's cookware. Back in 2015, 121,000 pieces were pulled from the store's shelves after several reports were received involving botched frying pans with tiny stainless steel discs that popped off the pans and burned people while cooking.
Customers who have purchased the knife and server set are being urged to stop using them and contact Macy's immediately for a refund.
