A Texas grocery is issuing a recall for potentially dangerous kitchen equipment.

H-E-B Grocery Company is recalling several models of stainless steel cookware as the metal discs that cover the cookware's rivets can pop off and hit consumers, posing an injury hazard.

The company has received seven reports of the metal discs popping off the cookware. No injuries have been reported.

The company is including about 41,000 pieces of equipment in this announcement.

The recall includes the Connect by H-E-B tri-ply stainless steel cookware. It was sold as a 12-piece set or as individual pieces. Connect is stamped into the base of the handle and the corresponding logo is stamped on the underside of the cookware. Cookware included in this recall does not have a date code on the underside. The UPC code can be found on the back of the product packaging. For a list of product names and UPCs, see the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) release.

These items were sold exclusively at H-E-B stores in Texas from September 2014 through December 2015 for between $20 and $250.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled cookware and return it to H-E-B for a full refund.

Customers with questions about the recall can contact H-E-B at (800) 432-3113.
