Swedish home products company Ikea is recalling a Forsta coffee and tea maker because of concerns that it could break, causing burns and cuts. More than 810,500 were sold worldwide between February last year and December. There had been 20 reports of the glass pots breaking, involving 12 burns from spilled coffee or tea and one laceration injury. There was no report of injury in Hong Kong. The China-made coffee and tea maker was available in two sizes worldwide, but only the one-litre model was sold in Hong Kong.
