Risk of Breaking Glass a Pressing Issue for Starbucks Product Recall

Manufacturing defect leads to recall of coffee pots exclusive to Starbucks

Washington, DC (I-Newswire) January 30, 2014 - A recall has been issued for over 28,000 Bodum Rose Gold glass coffee presses owing to a defect in manufacturing. According to the recall, the glass carafe on the inside of the pot is capable of falling out. The plastic base of the unit can separate from its metal frame. This creates a hazard that could lead to burns and lacerations. These coffee presses are branded and exclusively sold through coffee giant Starbucks.

As of right now, there have been fourteen reports of the carafes breaking and the glass shattering. Four minor injuries have been reported that include minor lacerations and burns.

The model in question is the Bodum Chambord locking rose gold 8-cup glass coffee presses. The carafe, screen and plunger are all held together by a rose gold-tinted metal frame. The black molded plastic base is at the center of the issue. When hot water is added to the carafe, the adhesive is weakened and eventually fails. The presses have a diameter of just 4 inches and stand 10 inches tall. The presses each have a locking lid and the Bodum logo is printed on the glass carafe. The sku number of the affected model is 11029732. The item is made in Portugal.

Consumers should cease the use of these units and return them to the Starbucks location where they were purchased and request a refund. A full refund is also available directly from the manufacturer that also includes free shipping of the returned item. They can be reached at 855-378-6864. The presses retail for approximately $40 and were sold at Starbucks locations nationwide as well as the Starbucks website between November and December 2013.

"Both Starbucks and Bodum took swift action on this matter," said Drazen Alcocer, founder and CEO of iFederated, parent company of iRecalls.com. "This was a recent purchase for many people. Some of these pots were likely given as Christmas gifts. Anyone who purchased one should heed the warnings and just return them."

Artin Afsharjavan, iFederated Chairman, also praised the company for its swift attention to the matter. "It is unfortunate that people have been hurt," he said, "but thankfully the word is getting out and fewer people will be affected. We at iRecalls.com recognize that access to timely information is vital for the protection of the general public. These presses were sold nationwide. What better way to spread the word about them than with a far-reaching social networking community that is committed to communicating just this kind of information?"

Alcocer went on to say that iRecalls.com is positioning itself as, "the premier source of up-to-date product recall information on the Web," and encouraged the general public to join their growing community at http://www.irecalls.com.
