I heard Pyrex was sold to a Chinese company. I don't know how true this is, and I don't remember exactly how long ago, maybe a couple of years or so. Any new Pyrex products are made in China and different materials and processes are used. They are known to explode very easily. I have 3 Pyrex baking pans that are at least 20 years old. The old ones made in the USA are good to go. I only use them for baking at lower temps (350 F or lower). I would never consider roasting in a glass baking dish. Get yourself a nice SS roasting pan. Glad to hear no one was injured!
