Bradshaw International, a distributor of dozens of brands of homeware and home cleaning products, has issued a recall for Bialetti coffee presses, following three reports of the glass carafes breaking and causing lacerations during normal use.
The recall involves the Bialetti presses with a glass beaker in a colored plastic frame with a steel plunger. The product prominently features the Bialetti icon and logo — most commonly associated with the Italian Bialetti brand’s iconic moka pots — printed on each side of the plastic frame and on the top of the plunger.
Bradshaw and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission say that some 85,000 units of the Chinese-manufactured French presses were sold between July 2016 and March 2017 online at Amazon.com and through retailers such as Fred Meyer, Kroger, Ross, HomeGoods and others. An additional approximately 300 presses were sold in Canada.
“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled coffee presses and contact Bradshaw International for a free replacement coffee press,” the CPSC said in last week’s recall announcement. Bradshaw International initiated the recall, which has been included in the CPSC’s “Fast Track” recall process, and consumers are being urged to contact Bradshaw International for a free replacement.
