01.Recall on thermo glass cookware sold in Coles nationally
A recall has been issued for Décor Corporation's selection of oven and microwave-safe tempered glass cookware products at Coles stores nationally from July 19 to August 2, 2011.
This recall was re-announced on 31 August 2011 as it was initially thought that there were only 13 affected units sold at one location (Coles in Berwick, Victoria). It has since been discovered that a much larger number of these products were sold through Coles stores nationally.
- Square 2L (item no 164200)
- Square 1L (item no 164300)

What are the hazards?
If breakage occurs, there may be a risk of property damage or injury from glass pieces/particles.
What are the defects?
Some of the products may not meet Décor's temperature differential specification, which may mean that some of the glassware is more prone to break or shatter under stress, including the stress of reasonably foreseeable product misuse.
What should consumers do?
Stop using the product immediately and contact Décor on ph (03) 9759 2222 to return it to Décor for a full refund or replacement product (when available).
