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.
