Tempered glass has been known to explode without being visibly damaged. The process of tempering can occasionally fix into the pane some small cracks if everything is not at precisely the right temperature range all over. One cold spot could allow a crack to form, and the tension in the glass from the tempering process makes the whole thing explode. Any other tiny manufacturing flaw can do the same. There was a rash of tempered glass tables exploding this summer over here.

According to frigidaire, any impact, scratch or stressing may induce a later failure, which could be explosive. source: http://www.wpxi.com/news/local/target-11-investigates-exploding-oven-glass_nwgyx/289466021

If I were a case maker, I'd be waiting to see if there's a significant number of glass failures in a year or so.
