IKEA has asked customers who have a FÖRSTÅ Coffee/Tea Maker to immediately stop using the product and bring it back to any IKEA store for a full refund. Pressure from the metal holder on the glass pot can cause it to break unexpectedly when the operator adds hot water or operates the press, which could result in burns or cuts.
IKEA has received one report in the U.S. of the glass pot breaking. No injury was reported. IKEA has received nineteen additional reports outside of the U.S. of the glass pot breaking. In those instances, twelve burn injuries from spilt coffee/tea were reported and one report of laceration injury.
FÖRSTÅ Coffee/Tea Maker were sold in two sizes, 0.4l and 1l, at IKEA stores worldwide between January 2010 and December 2010.
