Starbucks Recalls Over 2 Lakh Coffee Presses After Laceration Hazard

Starbucks Corp is recalling about 263,000 of its coffee presses, made in partnership with Bodum, after the world’s largest coffee chain received reports of the product breaking and causing deep cuts, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Wednesday.

Starbucks has received eight reports of the plunger’s knob breaking in the U.S. and one report from Canada, resulting in lacerations or puncture injuries, the commission said.

The presses, made from recycled materials, were sold at Starbucks cafes and on its website from November 2016 through January 2019, for about $20, according to the CPSC.
