May 17, 2017—Bradshaw International recalled certain Bialetti coffee presses, because the glass beaker might break during normal use, which poses a laceration hazard.
The recalled coffee press holds eight cups of liquid and has a glass beaker in a plastic frame that’s black, red, blue or green. The press has a mesh and stainless-steel metal plunger that has a polypropylene lid and handle that matches the frame’s color. The Bialetti icon and logo are printed on each side of the frame, and “Bialetti” is printed on the top of the plunger. The date stamp of March 2017 or an earlier date is printed on a dial date code that’s on the underside of the plunger. (The date code can be read on the dial from the center of the circle to its outer edge. The two numbers in the center of the circle indicate the year of production, and the arrow that’s in the circle points to the month of production that’s on the outer edge.)
The recalled presses were sold from July 2016 through March 2017 at Fred Meyer, HomeGoods, Kroger, Ross, Target and other specialty and grocery stores nationwide and at amazon.com.
The company received three reports of the glass beakers breaking and cutting fingers, and two of those reports involved consumers needing stitches.
Consumers immediately should stop using the recalled coffee presses and may call Bradshaw International for a free replacement coffee press.
