We bought a Martha Stewart Living patio furniture set from Kmart approximately 4 years ago. The other day the glass in the table shattered for no reason. It has always been under shade. We live in Southern California, so it never gets very cold. I have been researching this issue and have learned that this has happened to thousands of consumers. Why has no recall been issued? I have seen pictures of injuries from the flying glass. My table was very gently used. There was never anything dropped on it. From everything I have read, all of these people this has happened to are getting the runaround from the manufacturer, JRA who accordingly filed chapter 7 due to this matter, from Kmart, who tends to profess no knowledge or when they do, directs consumers to JRA (bankrupt!) or Martha Stewart Enterprises, which directs callers back to Kmart. A class action lawsuit was dismissed for a very trivial reason. Please help solve this problem. This patio set was over 500 dollars, and I wanted it to last. That was why I bought one that I thought was very nice. Thank Goodness we were not sitting at it like so many others to whom this has happened. I have a 2 year old, and I shudder to think of what could have been. Thank you
