IKEA has received 123 reports of such incidents worldwide. There have been four reports of injuries — most of them burns caused by hot contents — two of which required medical attention. One incident, without injury, has been reported in the U.S.

The HEROISK and TALRIKA lines of bowls, plates and mugs are involved in this recall. Recalled units have supplier number “23348,” “Made in Taiwan” and “PLA” molded into the bottom of the item.

The dishes were imported by IKEA Supply AG of Switzerland. They were sold between August 2019 and May 2021 at IKEA stores nationwide and online at ikea-usa.com for $4 to $12. Additionally, about 11,400 units were sold in Canada.

IKEA is warning purchasers to stop using the recalled plates, bowls and mugs immediately. You can return them directly to any IKEA store for a full refund — no receipt required.
