Cracker Barrel Recalls Their Exclusive Driftwood Pineapple Over Safety Concerns
Two injuries have been reported so far.
If you frequent the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, listen up.
The company has issued a nationwide recall of the Driftwood Pineapple ($39.99), a pineapple-shaped decor piece which sold as a Cracker Barrel exclusive online and in stores between June 6th and August 4th of this year. The recall is being issued due to metal leaves at the top of the item which are sharp and may cause a cut. Customers can return the item to any Cracker Barrel location for a full refund. You can read the full recall notice here or call 800-333-9566 for more information.
So far, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reports that they have "...received two reports of consumers cutting their fingers on the metal leaves on the pineapples, resulting in one injury that required stitches." If you own one or know someone who does, it's best to stop using the piece right away and return them to the stores. According to the CPSC, those who bought the piece online will be contacted directly.

Of course, as Southerners, we have a soft spot for pineapples, the symbol of hospitality. Alas, we think it's best to stick with these cute goods — from side tables to door knockers — better safe than spiky.
