Rund Ikea glass safety recall

On January 20, 2011 the RUND clear glass mug suffered a Joint Recall with IKEA, Health Canada, and the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (US CPSC).

The recall involves the RUND double-walled glass mugs from IKEA, sold in packs of two in 40mL, 210mL, and 400mL sizes. The words "Hand Made Quality" are printed on a small transparent sticker on the side of the mug.

  • 40mL mugs have article number 301-551-37.
  • 210mL mugs have article number 301-496-79.
  • 400mL mugs have article number 501-496-78.

In addition, all sizes have supplier number 16790. The article and supplier numbers can be found on the product packaging.

What is the danger?

Due to variations in glass thickness, the mugs can break when in use, posing a laceration hazard.

There have been no reported injuries in Canada. Globally, IKEA has received 12 reports of RUND glass mugs that have broken while in use. Five of the reports stated that minor injury had occurred.

At time of the recall Health Canada has not received any reports of incidents or injuries related to the use of these mugs.

You should immediately stop using the recalled RUND glass mugs and return them to any IKEA store in Canada for a full refund.
