Kohler, WI — Kohler Purist®, Pinstripe™, and Finial® glass shower doors are being voluntarily recalled by Kohler Co. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for laceration hazards the shower doors pose to consumers. The product recall was announced by the CPSC on July 27, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the hinge panel of the shower door can shatter, which poses a laceration hazard to consumers.

The CPSC reported, “The recall involves a 1/2 inch thick hinge panel included in the Kohler Purist®, Pinstripe® and Finial® frameless heavy glass pivot shower doors. The hinge panel was sold as a component under part numbers 705753-L-NA, 705754-L-NA and 705760-L-NA in various shower door packages as described in these tables. The hinge panels have a tempering date code imprinted on a bottom corner of the panel, and only hinge panels having a tempering date code of ‘05/09’ are included in this recall. The hinge panels are the side panels opposite the shower door handle, on which the metal swing hinge is mounted. The tempering date code also includes the name ‘Guardian’ above the tempering date. If the hinge is covering the tempering date code on the glass panel, please call Kohler Co. at the toll-free number listed below.”

The product description and model numbers involved in this recall can be found at: http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml11/11286.html

Consumers are advised to contact Kohler for a free replacement hinge panel, in which an Authorized Service Representative (ASR) from Kohler will come to remove the old hinge panel and replace it with the new hinge panel.

For more information about the nationwide product recall, consumers can contact Kohler Co. toll-free at (866) 782-6329 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit www.kohler.com.
