Home Depot recalls 70,000 door pulls

  • Everbilt Stainless Steel Door Pull. U.S. CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION

Few people would consider a door handle a hazardous part of a building. Those folks haven’t encountered the Everbilt Stainless Steel Door Pull, of which Home Depot recalled 70,200 recently.

The problem, as stated in the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall notice: “The door pulls can have sharp edges on the back, posing a laceration hazard.”

That might seem silly until you hear that “Home Depot has received 42 reports of the door pulls containing sharp edges, including 11 reports of minor injuries.”

These “door pulls” are 6.5 inches and use four screws. They were sold in Home Depot stores and from April 2018 through this past May for $6 each. Home Depot imported them from China, where they were made by Wellsco International Group.

Home Depot is offering refunds if customers bring the door handles back to a store. Those with questions can call Home Depot at 800-305-1726, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., EST, Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., EST, on Saturdays.
