Progressive International Recalls about 22,000 Canning Jar Lifters.
The jar lifter handle can detach over time due to a missing stainless steel core in the hinge.
This can cause the tongs to fail to grip and allow a jar being lifted to fall, posing a laceration hazard to the user.
The recall involves the One Handed Jar Lifter. The jar lifter is a pair of tongs designed for lifting canning jars out of boiling water.
The lifter is red with white handles. It is made of plastic and metal with a nylon coating.
They were sold at retailers nationwide and online from February 2012 to October 2012 for about $10.
Consumers should immediately stop using the jar lifter and contact the company for a free replacement.
