Calphalon is conducting a voluntary recall in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), of all Calphalon Contemporary Cutlery 17-piece and 21-piece sets with model numbers
(pictured below). The cutlery sets were manufactured from August 2007 through May 2011.
The 8" Slicer and 8" Bread knives included in these sets will protrude through the bottom of the knife block if placed in the bottom row of knife slots, posing a potential laceration hazard.
To verify that your cutlery set is affected, carefully count the total number of slots and/or openings in the wooden block. The affected blocks have either 18 or 24 total slots/openings.
If your block does not have either 18 or 24 total slots/openings it is
by this recall. NOT AFFECTED
Note: Knife blocks with a 3 digit number stamped on the underside of the wooden block (pictured below), are also by this recall. NOT AFFECTED
