    Fort Worth-based Pier 1 Imports recalls more than 150,000 glass knobs after several reports of injury due to the knobs breaking during use and installation.

    Pier 1 Imports has recalled more than 150,000 glass knobs due a risk of breaking, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

    The Fort Worth-based company recalled the Basic, Kira and Facets knobs after seven reports of injuries, such as lacerations, due to the knobs breaking during installation and use.

    The knobs — commonly used with dressers, cabinets and small drawers — have a metal stem affixed to one side and were sold in clear, teal, pink, green, aquamarine, champagne and silver.

    Pier 1 sold the knobs in stores nationwide and online from September 2011 through October 2016 for $6 to $7.

    Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled knobs and return them to any Pier 1 store for a refund.
