The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and New York City's Macy Merchandising Group recalled the Martha Stewart Collection Enamel Cast Iron Casseroles cookware due to cut and burn dangers. Macy has received reports that the hot enamel coating has cracked during cooking, causing the enamel to fly off or potentially land in the food.
The casserole dish recall includes the 7 quart, 5.5 quart and 2.75 quart dishes. The casserole dishes are stamped with "Martha Stewart Collection" on the bottom of the pans and the lid handle. The dishes came in red, cobalt blue, sand, green, white, blue, brown, tea and mustard colors. It appears that the defective products include those casserole dishes that have a cream-colored interior.
Pieces of hot enamel that crack off during cooking can cause burns, lacerations, blindness or ingestion of a sharp foreign body that was in the prepared food. Any sharp object that is swallowed can cause choking, pneumonia, lacerations of the esophagus, or a perforation of the stomach or intestines.

Please inform anyone you know, that owns Martha Stewart casserole dishes, of the recall. For right now, I think I am safe with my Rachael Ray bake ware.
