Be Aware of Defective Products | Ikea Coffee Pot Recall
According to a news release, IKEA Home Furnishings is cooperating with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada to recall FORSTA Coffee/Tea Makers.
The defect involves the metal holder that is against the glass pot, which comes in 0.4 liters and 1 liter sizes. It’s a “press pot” with a black plastic top and handle. The coffee and tea makers were made in China and sell for $6 to $10.
About 94,000 have been sold in the United States and another 34,000 have been sold in Canada, the company said.
There has been only one report of a breaking pot in the United States and there were no injuries. But IKEA said there had been 19 reports from outside of the United States; 12 people reported burns and one reported lacerations.
As Seattle product defect attorneys, we are saddened to hear that there have been twelve reported burns and one reported laceration. We advise anyone who purchased this product to immediately return it to IKEA for a full refund.
