WASHINGTON (AP) — Bodum USA is recalling 28,000 coffee presses sold exclusively at Starbucks due to the potential risk for lacerations and burns.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday the carafe in Bodum’s rose gold glass coffee presses can fall out of the base and break or shatter.

Bodum has received 14 reports of the glass carafe breaking or shattering and four reports of minor injuries.

The presses were sold at Starbucks stores and online from November through December for about $40. Regulators say consumers should stop using this product and return it to Starbucks or contact Bodum for a refund.

Consumers can reach Bodum at (855) 378-6864 or visit its website at www.bodum.com for more detail.
