WOODBURY -

Starbucks is recalling more than 230,000 Bodum 8-cup French presses due to a laceration hazard.

The coffee press' plunger knob can break and expose the metal rod, which has led to people getting cut.   

Starbucks has received eight reports of the plunger’s knob breaking, resulting in lacerations or puncture injuries.

The press was sold in stores nationwide and online from Nov. 2016 to Jan. 2019 for around $20.

Consumers should stop using the coffee presses and contact Starbucks for instructions on how to return the coffee press to receive a full refund.
