This week, hundreds of thousands of Starbucks French presses were recalled. Over 230,000 coffee presses were recalled due to a laceration hazard.
According to reports, Starbucks issued the voluntary recall of its Bodum Recycled Coffee Presses. The products were sold between November 2016 through January 2019.
Delish reported that the company had received eight to nine complaints of the plunger’s knob breaking during use. Because of that, there is a risk of puncture wounds or cuts.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission wrote, “The coffee press’ plunger knob can break and expose the metal rod, posing a laceration hazard.”
Because of the reports, Starbucks issued the recall. The recall affects 230,000 units distributed throughout the United States and 33,000 units throughout Canada.
The SKU number on the presses is 011063549. The words “Bodum” and “Made in Portugal” are on the bottom of the presses as well.
Starbucks noted that customers can bring in their recalled Coffee Press to any Starbucks location. They will receive a full refund in the form of a Starbucks credit.
