Starbucks recalls coffee presses due to laceration, puncture hazard

Starbucks recalled its coffee presses Wednesday due to laceration hazards, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The Bodum + Starbucks Recycled Coffee Press' plunger knob can break and expose the metal rod, posing the possibly of cutting the user.

The coffeehouse chain has received eight reports of the plunger's knob breaking in the U.S., causing puncture injuries.

About 230,000 units were sold nationwide in Starbucks stores and online from November 2016 through January 2019 for $20.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled coffee presses and contact Starbucks for instructions on how to return the coffee press to receive a full refund in the form of a store credit. Returns will not be accepted in stores, the company says.
