Tristar Products Recalls Magnetic Trivet Due To Magnet Ingestion Hazard

Tristar Products, Inc., (“Tristar”), in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), is recalling and replacing magnetic trivets which were sold as part of a Copper Chef 10-Piece Cerami-Tech Nonstick Cookware Set. Each set includes an 11” square pot, 11” square glass lid, steamer tray, fry basket, 11” fry pan, square glass press, 9.5” square pot, 9.5” square glass lid, a cookbook, and two magnetic trivets. QVC sold the set and Tristar sold additional trivets separately as replacements. Only the trivets are being recalled. None of the other components of the Copper Chef 10-Piece Cerami-Tech Cookware Set are being recalled.

Tristar is recalling the magnetic trivets because it received one report of a child who swallowed four magnets that dislodged from a trivet. The child is reported to have suffered intestinal perforations and blockage requiring surgeries.

Please stop using the trivets immediately and place them in an area that children cannot access.

Tristar is offering free replacement trivets. The replacement trivets do not have magnets.
