Bialetti Coffee Presses Recalled for Laceration Hazard

Bialetti coffee presses are being recalled because the glass beakers can break during normal use, posing a laceration hazard. There have been three reports of the glass beakers breaking and cutting fingers; some consumers have needed stitches.

The Bialetti coffee presses are a glass beaker in a plastic frame with a stainless steel metal plunger. They were sold in blue, green, black, and red and hold eight cups of water. The plunger is stainless steel metal and mesh with a polypropylene lid and handle in matching color to the frame. The coffee press exterior measures 6.5 inches by 9.5 inches and the interior of the glass beaker measures 7 inches by 3.75 inches.

The polypropylene lid has 14 vents in the bottom of the rim to strain fluids, while pouring. 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 earlier is printed on the underside of the plunger in a dial date code. (Dial date codes are read from the center of the circle outward. The two numbers in the center of the circle represent the year of production. The arrow in the circle points to the month of production on the outer circle.)

If you purchased this product, stop using it. About 85,000 of these units were sold in the United States, and 300 were sold in Canada. They were sold at Fred Meyer, Kroger, Ross, Target, HomeGoods and other specialty and grocery stores nationwide and online at Amazon from July 2016 through March 2017 for between $15 and $20. This product was made in China.
