Calphalon Is Recalling More Than 2 Million Knives

Safety first, everyone

A reliable knife is an important tool in the kitchen. It should be easy and comfortable to hold, and durable enough to slice and chop through common meats, fruits and vegetables. When you choose a brand, you're putting a certain amount of trust in its products, hoping they will hold up. But unfortunately, that isn't the case with knives from Calphalon's Contemporary Cutlery line.

The company has issued a recall for chef, carving, utility, paring and santoku knives sold between August 2008 and December 2016. The company received 3,150 reports of the knives breaking and 27 reports of customers cutting themselves. Retailers affected by the recall include Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy's and Kohl's (more here).

If this applies to you, put down the knives and contact the company immediately. Safety first, everyone.
