IKEA recalls coffee maker

SINGAPORE: Home products company, IKEA, is recalling its FORSTA coffee/tea maker.

Pressure from the metal holder on the glass pot can cause it to break unexpectedly, posing a burn and laceration hazard.

In a statement, it advised customers to immediately stop using the product and bring it back to the Exchange and Returns counter at any IKEA store for a full refund.

IKEA said it has received twenty reports of the glass pot breaking, including twelve reports of burn injures from spilt coffee/tea and one report of a laceration injury.

But none of the cases involved Singapore.

The product was sold at IKEA stores worldwide, including Singapore, between February and December last year.
