The following recalls have been announced:


About 300 stainless steel cookware sets, manufactured in India and distributed by Cost Plus Inc. of Oakland, Calif., because the handles can break and put users at risk of burns. No incidents have been reported. The cookware was sold at Cost Plus World Market stores around the country in August 2009. Details: by phone at 877-967-5362; by Web at or


About 10,000 alpine ski bindings, made in Romania and imported by Salomon USA, of Ogden, Utah, because the product's toe component could fail to fully secure the ski boot to the ski binding, causing the binding to release unexpectedly. This could cause the skier to lose control or fall and suffer injuries. There have been two reports of injuries, including a broken leg and a knee injury. The products were sold at authorized Salomon USA and Atomic USA ski dealers nationwide from September 2008 through last month. Details: by phone at 877-789-5111; by Web at or
