The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recommending that Starbucks customers who may have purchased a co-branded coffee press (see photo below) should immediately stop using them as they have had recent reports of lacerations and puncture injuries.
“This recall involves Bodum + Starbucks co-branded coffee presses partially made from recycled materials. The 8-cup French coffee 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. The coffee presses measure about 9 inches high by about 4 inches in diameter. SKU number 011063549 is printed on a white label on the bottom of the base. Bodum and Made in Portugal are embossed on the bottom of the dark gray plastic base.”
“Starbucks has received eight reports of the plunger’s knob breaking in the U.S. and one report of the plunger’s knob breaking in Canada, resulting in lacerations or puncture injuries. … Sold at Starbucks stores nationwide and online at Starbucks.com from November 2016 through January 2019 for about $20.”
