On February 18, 2015, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Tommy Bahama Group Inc. of Seattle, WA, announced the recall of their Hula Girl Cocktail Shaker and Glass Sets Due to Laceration Hazard. The glass shaker can break or shatter unexpectedly, posing a risk of laceration. Tommy Bahama has received five reports of the glass shaker breaking or shattering, including one report of a laceration requiring stitches when the shaker broke during use. About 1,700 were sold at Tommy Bahama retail stores nationwide and online at www.TommyBahama.com from September 2014 through January 2015 for about $50.
The recall includes the Tommy Bahama Hula Girl Shaker & Glass Sets sold with one glass 18-ounce shaker and two 8-ounce cocktail glasses. The glass shaker has a stainless steel top, a green palm tree decal and three decals of hula girls wearing red bikini top, green grass skirts and yellow and red leis around their neck. The two cocktail glasses have one dancing hula girl decal. The shaker sets were sold in a yellow and light brown box with a white label on the bottom of the package with the Tommy Bahama logo and product style code TH31993 printed above the UPC code.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Hula Girl Shaker & Glass Set and contact Tommy Bahama for a full refund.

As a consumer, safety advocate, and trial lawyer, I am continually troubled by the fact that manufacturers and retailers continue to sell dangerous products. Manufacturers, in their zeal to get products on the market, often cut corners and overlook safety when designing and manufacturing products. Manufacturers have an obligation and opportunity to thoroughly assess product safety before the launch of a product. It should not take a person to get injured for a manufacturer to make a product safe.
