Starbucks Coffee Press Recall Issued Due to Risk of Shattering, Burns

About 28,000 glass coffee presses sold exclusively at Starbucks are being recalled following reports that they may shatter, resulting in burns and lacerations to users.  

The Starbucks coffee press recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on January 28, due to a potential risk that the glass carafe may fall out of the metal frame. There have been at least four reports of injury associated with the coffee presses, including two minor burns and two lacerations.

The coffee press is designed to brew coffee by putting the ground coffee and hot water in a glass carafe, with the use pushing down the plunger and screen through the water to brew.
