    Canning Jar Lifter Recall

    Thu Feb 07, 2013 6:06 pm

    Product description
    This recall involves the One Handed Jar Lifter. The jar lifter is a pair of tongs designed for lifting canning jars out of boiling water. The lifter is red with white handles and is made of plastic and metal with a nylon coating.

    Hazard identified
    The jar lifter handle can detach over time due to a missing stainless steel core in the hinge. This can cause the tongs to fail to grip and allow a jar being lifted to fall, posing a laceration hazard to the user.

    Neither Health Canada, the US CPSC, nor the companies have received any reports of injury or property damage.
