Bodum USA has announced a recall of roughly 28,000 Bodum rose gold glass coffee presses, sold exclusively at Starbucks. The glass carafe can fall out of the metal frame and plastic base of the coffee press and break or shatter, posing laceration and burn hazards to consumers.

This recall involves Bodum rose gold Chambord locking lid 8-cup glass coffee presses. The coffee press' glass carafe, screen and plunger are held in place by a metal frame which is rose gold-colored with a black molded plastic base. Consumers put ground coffee and hot water in the glass carafe and push the plunger and screen down through the water to brew coffee. 'Bodum' and SKU number '11029732' are printed on a white label on the bottom of the base.

To date, Bodum has received about 14 reports of the glass carafes breaking or shattering when the coffee press' plastic base separated from the metal frame. There have been four reports of minor injuries, including two lacerations and two burns.

The recalled Bodum coffee presses were sold at Starbucks nationwide and online from November 2013 through December 2013.

Consumers should stop using the recalled coffee presses and return them to the Starbucks store where purchased for a full refund. Consumers who purchased their coffee press online should contact Bodum for a pre-paid return label.
