WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Innova Inc., Davenport, Iowa, is voluntarily recalling to replace about 8,700 Ultrex Thermal/Double Wall frying pans. The pans can explode or separate when preheated, used on high heat, or used for frying, which can pose a serious burn hazard from hot oil or food contents spilling onto consumers.

Innova has received 16 reports of these frying pans exploding, including two consumers who received burns from hot oil and eight reports of property damage.

Sounds to me, that these frying pans have not been heat-tempered properly, during manufacture.
What does anyone else think?. [Linked Image]

Possibly some air or water trapped between the two walls and sealed in there too well?
