Bodum + Starbucks Recycled Coffee Press recalled due to a laceration risk


This recall involves the Bodum + Starbucks Recycled 8 cup coffee press. The press’ cylindrical glass beaker, screen and plunger are held in place by a plastic dark gray frame with locking lid and a light gray handle and knob. Bodum and Made in Portugal are embossed on the bottom of the dark gray plastic base.
Hazard identified: The plastic knob at the top of the coffee press may break when the user is pressing down on the coffee press plunger, resulting in exposure of the plunger’s metal rod and posing a laceration risk.
