Home Olympic Flatware

Home Olympic Flatware recalled due to choking hazard (October 23, 2009)

Certain kinds of flatware are being recalled because they contain small pieces that can break off and choke children if they put the pieces in their mouths.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Cambridge Silversmiths Ltd. Inc. are recalling about 13,000 sets of Fiesta Masquerade and Home Olympic Flatware.

The plastic decorative inserts on the flatware's handles can come of during dishwashing, posing a choking hazard to children.

The company has already received 28 reports of a plastic insert detaching from the flatware, causing one injury.

The flatware came in 20-piece sets. The Fiesta Masquerade flatware set is silver-colored and the handles have plastic decorative inserts in red, orange, yellow, green and blue. The Home Olympic flatware sets are charcoal and the handles have decorative black inserts.

The Fiesta Masquerade flatware was sold at JC Penney, Federated Department Stores, Bealls and Homer Laughlin from November 2008 through May 2009 for about $70 per 20-piece set.

The Home Olympic flatware was sold at Target from August 2008 through August 2009 for about $30 per 20-piece set.
