Details of the Recall
So far, the company has received 29 reports of the knobs breaking during use, resulting in injuries to at least three consumers. The recalled knobs were sold at Home Depot stores nationwide and at various online retailers including homedepot.com, wayfair.com, dlawlesshardware.com, and build.com from July 2016 through September 2021 for between $4 and $6 each.
