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!
I also found this letter on the Pyrex site that responds to comments about the manufacture of Pyrex Glass Bakeware:

.....for what it's worth.
