The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with IKEA retailers, has recalled about 94,000 FÖRSTÅ Coffee/Tea Makers in the U.S.
Pressure from the metal pot holder against the coffee/tea maker can cause the glass to break, posing burn and laceration hazards. IKEA has received one report in the U.S. of a glass coffee/tea maker breaking. No injury was reported. IKEA has received 19 additional reports, outside of the U.S., of the glass coffee/tea makers breaking, resulting in 12 reports of burn injuries from spilt coffee/tea and one report of a laceration injury.
This recall involves FÖRSTÅ coffee/tea makers sold in sizes 0.4 and 1 liters. The coffee/tea maker is a press pot with a handmade clear glass pot, metal holder and black plastic top and handle. Coffee/tea makers included in this recall have supplier number 20325, "IKEA" and "Made in China" on the bottom of the metal holder.
The item was sold exclusively at IKEA stores nationwide from January 2010 through December 2010 for between $6 and $10.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product and bring it back to any IKEA store for a full refund.
