Bodum Recalls Coffee Presses Sold at Starbucks for Laceration & Burn Hazards

submitted on January 31, 2014 by HouTex in "Products / Gadgets"
The recall affects about 28,000 Bodum Chambord locking lid 8-cup glass coffee presses that were sold exclusively online and in Starbucks stores from November 2013 through December 2013 for about $40.

There have been 4 injuries among 14 reports of breakage. The glass carafe can fall out of the metal frame and plastic base of the coffee press and break or shatter, posing laceration and burn hazards to consumers.

This recall involves Bodum rose gold Chambord locking lid 8-cup glass coffee presses. The coffee press’ glass carafe, screen and plunger are held in place by a metal frame which is rose gold-colored with a black molded plastic base. Consumers put ground coffee and hot water in the glass carafe and push the plunger and screen down through the water to brew coffee. The coffee presses are 10 inches high by about 4 inches in diameter. The coffee press has a locking lid. Bodum is printed on the glass carafe. Bodum and SKU number 11029732 are printed on a white label on the bottom of the base. Bodum and Made in Portugal are embossed on the bottom of the black plastic base.

Consumers should stop using the recalled coffee presses immediately and return them to the Starbucks store where purchased. Consumers who bought the coffee presses online should contact Bodum [1-855-378-6864] for a pre-paid return label to return the coffee presses and receive a full refund.

    I have one similar but not the exact same model... no problems yet and makes excellent coffee. Guess I'll just take extra care. Neutral

    Curious that it's only the model sold by Starbucks. Bodum has a lot of others sold at places like Crate & Barrel or on their own website, - many are even cheaper than the Starbucks model, with good reviews and no other recalls.
