Nine people have been injured using Starbucks/Bodum French Presses after the plunger handle snapped off, causing the stem to stab or cut them. As a result, Starbucks is recalling 236,000 of the presses.
Co-branded by Starbucks with Bodum, the eight-cup French press has a cylindrical glass beaker with a screen and a plunger held in place by a plastic dark gray frame with locking lid and a light gray handle and knob. Made in Portugal, the recalled product measures about nine inches high and four inches wide, and has the number 011063549 printed on a white label on the bottom of its base.
Consumers should stop using the presses and contact Starbucks about how to obtain a refund in the form of store credit. The Seattle, Washington-based company said it is not accepting returns at its stores.
