Pier 1 Imports Recalls Glass Knobs Due to Laceration Hazard

The company has received seven reports of injuries resulting from the knobs breaking during installation or while in use

November 8, 2016

Pier 1 Imports has issued a recall of Basic, Kira, and Facets glass knobs commonly used with dressers, cabinets, and small drawers. The glass knobs can break while in use, posing a risk of laceration to users from broken glass pieces.

The glass knobs have a metal stem affixed to one side and were sold in seven colors: clear, teal, pink, green, aquamarine, champagne, and silver. No other decorative knobs are included in this recall.

Approximately 140,000 knobs, in addition to about 17,600 units sold in Canada, were sold in the U.S. at Pier 1 Imports stores and online from September 2011 through October 2016 for between $6 and $7.

To date, the company has received seven reports of injuries as a result of the glass knobs breaking during installation or while in use.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled glass knobs and return them to any Pier 1 Imports store for a full refund or merchandise credit.

Consumers with any additional questions or concerns about this recall can contact Pier 1 Imports toll-free at (855) 513-5140.
