Starbucks has voluntarily recalled the Bodum + Starbucks Recycled Coffee Press, which was sold in stores in countries across Europe, Middle East and Africa between January 2018 and April 2019. The coffee press’ plunger knob has the potential to break and expose the metal rod underneath.
While there have been no reports of any incident or related injury in Europe, the Middle East or Africa (EMEA), there have been a small number of such reports from customers in the U.S. and Canada. Out of an abundance of caution, we have still decided to initiate a voluntary recall of this product in EMEA. The safety of our customers will always be our top priority.
