Cole & Mason Pepper Mills Recalled For Laceration Hazard

Cole & Mason Pepper Mills that were sold exclusively at Wegmans Food Markets are being recalled for possible laceration hazard. The pepper mills have a metal grinding mechanism that lets off metal shards for the first ten grinds. The shards would be mixed in with the ground pepper, posing a mouth injury hazard as well as a laceration hazard for the mouth and esophagus.
