Cost Plus stores are peppered around the nation, often found in major strip malls alongside companies like Target and Old Navy. The company is known for providing products with international charm for bargain prices. However, the company is in the spotlight for issuing a voluntary recall with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission. According to this report, the product of concern is their Moroccan tea glasses which were found to contain extremely high levels of lead in the bright coloring on the outside of the glasses.
An estimated 14,000 tea glasses have been the subject of this particular product recall. So far, no injuries have been reported. This Tacoma personal injury lawyer hopes that they were able to catch the hazard early enough to avoid anyone from sustaining injuries from exposure to the glasses. Children are particularly susceptible to lead poisoning, especially if ingested. Cost Plus/World Market is urging consumers to stop using the glasses immediately and return them to the store for a full refund.
The tea glasses were manufactured at a facility in Morocco and retailed for $5-$6 dollars depending on the size. The bright red, blue and green coloring containing lead, was etched onto the exterior of the glasses. I urge you to consult with a reputable Tacoma personal injury lawyer in the event that you’ve suffered from lead poisoning in a recalled product. They will work tirelessly to protect your right to proper compensation for your damages.
