January 7, 2011 - Meyer Trading Company, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, is recalling about 7,500 8-inch cast iron, enamel coated skillets sold under the brand name Technique.
When the recalled Technique skillets heat up, particles of the coating may pop off. This could cause a consumer to sustain a burn injury.
The Technique skillets, made in China and manufactured by Meyer Trading Company Ltd., were sold though QVC, which is based in West Chester, Pa. The skillets were available on QVC's televised programs as well as on the QVC website and in QVC stores from August 2009 to September 2010. They sold for $28-$35.
There have been 5 reports of incidents involving the coating popping off the recalled skillets and 2 reports of people suffering minor burns.
The recalled Technique cast-iron skillets have dual pour spouts and the underside is ribbed and emblazoned with "Technique" name. The inside of the skillet is cream colored and the exterior is sage, blue or red.
Consumers are advised to stop using the recalled skillets immediately. Some consumers may have already been mailed instructions for getting a refund. If you bought the skillet at a brick and mortar QVC store, you can return it to any QVC store for a refund.
