IKEA Recalls Bowls, Plates, and Mugs Due to Burn Hazard

May 19, 2021 - from CPSC in conjunction with Healthy Canadians:

IKEA Recalls Bowls, Plates, and Mugs Due to Burn Hazard. The bowls, plates, and mugs can become brittle and break, causing hot food or liquid to leak out, posing a burn hazard.

This recall involves the HEROISK and TALRIKA bowls, plates, and mugs made from PLA (Polylactic acid or polylactide) material from renewable sources. The bowls, plates and mugs were sold in a variety of colors, including yellow, pink and blue. The article name (“HEROISK” or “TALRIKA”), supplier number “23348,” “Made in Taiwan” and “PLA” are molded into the bottom of each item.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bowls, plates, and mugs and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund.

Sold At: IKEA stores nationwide and online at www.ikea-usa.com from August 2019 through May 2021 for between $4 and $12.

IKEA is aware of 123 reports of breakage worldwide, including four reports of injuries, two of which required medical attention. Most of the injuries were burns due to hot contents leaking out. This includes one incident, without injury, in the United States.
