May 2, 2019 — Starbucks has recalled about 263,000 Bodum French Coffee Presses after reports of people who were cut or punctured when it broke.
The problem is that the Starbucks coffee press plunger knob can break and expose the metal rod, posing a laceration hazard, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Starbucks has received 8 reports of the plunger’s knob breaking in the U.S. and 1 report of the plunger’s knob breaking in Canada, resulting in lacerations or puncture injuries.
The recall involves 8-cup Bodum + Starbucks coffee presses that are partly made from recycled materials. The words “Bodum” and “Made in Portugal” are embossed on the bottom of the plastic base.
SKU number 011063549 is printed on a white label on the bottom of the base.
They were sold at Starbucks stores nationwide and online from November 2016 through January 2019 for about $20.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled coffee presses and contact Starbucks for instructions on how to return them for in-store credit. Returns will not be accepted in stores.
