Instant Recall


Glass vases recalled

Ashland Glass Vases distributed by Michaels Stores Inc. of Irving, Texas, have been recalled.

About 30,000 of the vases were sold exclusively at Michaels Arts & Crafts Stores in the United States and Canada from January 2008 through October 2011.

The vase is rectangular and made of clear glass. It is 12 inches tall, 8 inches wide and 2.5 inches deep. They were manufactured in China.

The glass vases can break or fracture when a consumer picks them up, posing a laceration hazard.

The company has received four reports of the vase shattering and causing lacerations to the hands. One person had surgery; two people needed stitches.

For more information, contact Michaels at 800-642-4235 Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Fort Wayne time, or visit the company’s website at
