Starbucks Corp. is voluntarily recalling 263,000 Bodum coffee presses it sold for more than two years after the world’s largest coffee chain received reports of the product breaking and causing deep cuts.
Starbucks has sold the Bodum presses online or in its stores between November 2016 and this past January. These presses have been used by the consumers to brew coffee, adding ground beans and hot water in a cylindrical pot and then pushing a screen down over the grounds using a plunger.
But a knob on the plunger on the presses which is Starbucks now recalling has broken for some customers. This was causing injuries, according to the consumer products safety agency. Starbucks has received eight reports of the plunger knob breaking in the U.S. and one such report in Canada.
