Paula Deen's line of cast iron pans, sole exclusively on QVC, are being recalled because they can "crack or shatter during heating," reports the New York Times. I guess the "extra handle" Paula put on for "a little extra stability" wasn't enough!
The manufacturer that supplied the pans exclusively to QVC, Meyer Trading Corporation, learned of the problems after consumers complained about cracked pans, said Suzanne Murphy, Vice President for Marketing of the Meyer Corporation, an affiliate of Meyer Trading. Meyer Trading notified the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission at the end of July, she said, and in August QVC sent recall letters to people who had purchased the pans.
Is it just me, or does Paula have waaaaaaaaaaaay too many products out there? She's got the pans, the hams, the pork roasts, the nuts, the furniture line, the hair extensions, the false teeth, the butter-flavored adult undergarments, the.... well, she might not have some of those... but give her time!
