What’s the Problem?
This recall affects Ikea HEROISK and TALRIKA bowls, plates, and mugs made from PLA (Polylactic acid or polylactide) material from renewable sources, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC).
“The bowls, plates, and mugs can become brittle and break, causing hot food or liquid to leak out, posing a burn hazard,” CPSC said. “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.”
The recalled Ikea dinnerware was 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.
Affected products were sold online and at Ikea stores nationwide from August 2019 through May 2021 for between $4 and $12.
If you purchased any dinnerware that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and return it to any Ikea store for a refund.
This recall began on May 19, 2021.
