Nobody wants the bloody cuts or lost bourbon from too-breakable glassware, especially during the holidays. So, Libbey Glass recalled about 229,000 eight-ounce bourbon taster glasses.
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission’s recall notice, “The glasses can break during normal use, posing a laceration hazard.”
The notice says Libbey’s has gotten two reports of 12 glasses breaking, but no injuries.
Each glass will have one of three logos -- “Kentucky Bourbon Trail,” “Kentucky Bourbon Trail Craft Tours,” “SIV” -- laser-etched onto the glass bottom. They were sold individually and in quartets at Libbey outlet stores, Total Wine stores nationwide, various brick-and-mortar and online stores nationwide.
