The third week of October, The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Kohler Co., of Kohler, Wisc. recalled Kohler and Sterling Frameless by-pass bath doors. The glass doors can shatter, posing a laceration hazard.
The recall involves Kohler and Sterling frameless by-pass bath doors. By-pass doors consist of two panels that slide on a track and overlap one another. They can be identified by the tempering date located on the bath door glass panel, which reads “080410” or by the SAU (serial) number on the manufacturer’s box.
