Product Recall Information


Why is the GreenPan Dutch Oven being recalled?

There have been four consumer reports that when the GreenPan Dutch oven is used in the oven over 450 degrees the lid can explode, posing potential injury and burn hazards to the consumer. While no injuries have been reported, we are voluntarily recalling the product in an abundance of caution.

You may still use the Dutch oven but not the lid in the oven.


How do I know if my Dutch Oven is part of the recall?

This recall involves ONLY the Greenpan Simmerlite Dutch Oven with Lid. The product comes in six sizes, 3.5Q-7.0Q, and two colors: Black Metallic and Smokey Sky Blue. The top of the lid says “THE DUTCH OVEN” and “GREENPAN.”

The bottom of the lid says “Dishwasher Safe” The Dutch Oven Designed and Engineered in Belgium.” If you still have the bottom of the box, you can find the UPC code on it. I can let you know if your UPC code is involved in the recall.
