Does Martha Stewart Sell Exploding Tables?

If you have a MARTHA STEWART glass-top patio table, you might want to practice your DUCK AND COVER techniques before your next barbecue. Because there’s a chance it could EXPLODE on you.

 

 

–That happened on Father’s Day to the Passarella family near Denver, Colorado. They’d just finished eating when the tabletop shattered.

 

 

–Nancy Passarella says, quote, “It was like, Boom! It just blew up . . . no reason. All of the sudden we heard this loud explosion, and the table proceeds to disintegrate.”

 

 

–This isn’t an isolated incident, either. Apparently, there have been hundreds of complaints about this same table, and there was even a class-action lawsuit years ago.

 

 

–The Consumer Product Safety Commission asked Martha Stewart Living to redesign the table in 2006. The Passarellas say they bought theirs at Kmart in 2008 or 2009.

 

 

–A rep for Martha’s company says it’s Kmart’s responsibility to fix the problem. They also issued a statement saying, quote, “We do not oversee the mechanical design, engineering or manufacturing of the products.”
