Bodum Recalls Coffee Presses with Burn, Laceration Risks

By Williams & Brown LLP on February 7, 2014

Bodum, makers of coffee presses and similar products, recently announced a recall of its rose gold Chambord locking lid eight-cup glass coffee presses. These were sold only at Starbucks stores and on from November through December 2013.

The presses are being recalled because the glass carafe can come loose from the frame. If the carafe becomes too loose, it can slide out altogether, causing burns if hot coffee is spilled and cuts if the glass breaks. The company has received reports of 14 different cases in which the glass broke. Four people suffered lacerations and burns.

The coffee press has a glass carafe, held in place by a rose-gold-colored metal frame. The press also has a black handle and a black plastic base. They are about 10 inches high and about four inches in diameter and bear the SKU number 11029732 on the bottom of the base. The lid includes a plunger with a screen, which is pushed through the coffee to trap the grounds at the bottom of the carafe before the coffee is poured.

Owners of these coffee presses should stop using them immediately. Instead, return the press to the Starbucks where it was purchased. If the press was purchased online, contact Bodum for a postage-paid shipping label to return the press. Customers who return their defective coffee presses will receive a full refund.

If you purchased one or received one as a gift and were injured while using it, consider speaking to an experienced Texas personal injury attorney to understand and protect your rights. Click here for our firm’s contact information.
