Last week my children went outside to play in my backyard. They immediately came back inside. My 4 year old was bleeding and had a small cut on her foot. My 6 year said that the patio table was broken into thousands of little pieces. I went outside to investigate and found that it was exactly how she had described it. The glass from my patio table had shattered into hundreds of tiny pieces. I was so confused as to how this had happened. I googled "shattered patio table and found many links telling stories very similar to mine; glass patio tables shattering randomly, in as little as 2 weeks after purchase up to 3 years after purchase. Many times the consumers were not a witness and found the resulting mess. Other times consumers reported the table "exploding into hundreds of pieces." I was shocked that this is a problem that I am not alone in facing. I also found from my research that the Martha Stewart table sold at [REDACTED] is often the product affected. My table is a Martha Stewart table, but was purchased at Home Depot. I contacted home depot through phone and email and was twice told that they were sorry for the incident, but that because my table had been purchased in March 2013 (2 years ago) that it is not covered under their return policy and the warranty has expired. I am even more shocked to learn that this product is still being sold at Home Depot. I was lucky that my family was not outside when my table exploded and we only suffered minor injuries, but I am hoping to prevent a far worse incident from happening to someone else.

I was told to contact the manufacturer, but was told by the retailer that my manufacturer's warranty was expired. I will still try to contact them, but expect little results.
