IKEA Recalls Coffee and Tea Makers After Reports of Pots Shattering


IKEA Home Furnishings recalled almost 130,000 Forsta coffee/tea makers in the United States and Canada after reports of the glass pot breaking, causing burns and cuts, said the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

CPSC said the metal pot holder creates pressure against the glass pot, breaking it. IKEA has received 19 reports in other countries of the coffee makers breaking, with 12 consumers burned and one cut. The company has had one report of the glass pot breaking in the United States, with no one hurt.Health Canada said there have been no reports of consumers getting hurt there.

This is the third recall in as many months by the Swedish home products retailer -- in January IKEA recalled glass mugs that could break; last month it recalled cribs.
