Starbucks is recalling 230,000 Bodum coffee presses in the U.S. after reports surfaced of users being slashed while using it — another 33,200 units sold in Canada are also being recalled.
The coffee chain 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.
Starbucks is urging consumers to stop using the 8-cup French coffee press and contact the company for a full store credit refund.
Returns will not be accepted in stores.
The $20 presses are made from recycled materials and sold from 2016 to January 2018, according to a release by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
