NOTTINGHAM, MD—IKEA has announced a recall of approximately 148,000 bowls, plates, and mugs sold in its stores due to a burn hazard.
The 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.
The bowls, plates, and mugs can become brittle and break, causing hot food or liquid to leak out, posing a burn hazard.
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.
The items were sold at IKEA stores nationwide and online from August 2019 through May 2021 for between $4 and $12.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled bowls, plates, and mugs and return them to any IKEA store for a full refund.
