The company has recalled its FÖRSTÅ coffee/tea maker, and is asking customers to stop using the product immediately and bring it back to any IKEA store for a full refund.

It reports:


Pressure from the metal holder on the glass pot can cause it to break unexpectedly, posing a burn and laceration hazard.

IKEA has received twenty reports of the glass pot breaking, including twelve reports of burn injures from spilt coffee/tea and one report of laceration injury.

The FÖRSTÅ coffee/tea makers come in two sizes – 0.4 litre and 1 litre – and were sold at IKEA stores worldwide between February – December 2010. They were made in China.
