PetSmart Recalls Fish Bowls due to Laceration Hazard

PetSmart is recalling about 10,200 glass fish bowls. The glass fish bowls can crack, shatter or break during normal handling, posing a laceration hazard to consumers.

This recall involves the 1.75-gallon glass fish bowl that is shaped like a brandy snifter. These fish bowls were sold under the Great Choice or Top Fin brand names with SKU number 5140161 and UPC code 737257187092. The SKU and UPC codes are printed on a white sticker on the bottom of the fish bowl.

PetSmart has received ten reports of the glass fish bowl breaking during normal use, including five reports of cuts to fingers and a knee.  Four of the cuts required stitches. One required surgery for a lacerated tendon in a consumer’s finger.

The fish bowls were sold at PetSmart stores nationwide from February 2013 through September 2013 for about $20 and were manufactured in China.

Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the fish bowl and return it to any PetSmart store for a full refund.
