PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Sometimes comfort food is the best way to get through the cold winter months – but if you’re going to do some cooking, make sure to check your pots and pans first.

Macy’s is recalling 121,000 pans included in the Martha Stewart Collection 10-piece stainless steel cookware sets. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the steel discs on the rivets that attach the pans to their handles can pop off.

The recall includes the eight-inch and 10-inch frying pans. Macy’s has received seven reports of the rivet discs popping off, and three reports of injuries – including bruises, burns and welts.martha stewart recall

Consumers should stop using the pans immediately and return them to Macy’s for a full refund. The rest of the cooking set is not affected.

Another cooking tool is also being recalled this week. Breville USA is recalling over 35,000 pressure cookers because steam or hot contents can escape the cooker and burn you.

The recall involves Breville 6-quart capacity domestic programmable electric pressure cookers. According to the company, it has received five reports of burns, including second-degree burns to the hands, arms or stomach.

The recalled pressure cookers were sold at Bed, Bath and Beyond, Macy’s, Sur La Table, and Williams-Sonoma stores nationwide. They were also available on Amazon.

Consumers should stop using the pressure cookers immediately and contact Breville for a free replacement-sealing gasket and updated instructions.
