Teavana Corporation of Atlanta, Georgia, has announced the recall of their Teavana Glass Tea Tumblers. The containers can break or shatter unexpectedly, resulting in lacerations and burn injuries to the user. Teavana is the importer of the products, which were made in China.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the company manufactured about 475,000 of the tumblers to be sold in the US and Canada.
The glass tea tumblers are double-walled beverage glasses. Most models have removable stainless steel tea infuser baskets, removable lids, and ornamental etchings on the inner wall. The tumblers were packaged in color-coordinated cylindrical packages with the SKU number and UPC code found on a sticker on the bottom of the package. Some of the models with a lid were sold as part of a tea gift set. Only one model was sold without a lid or tea infuser basket and was sold in a set of four glasses.
“There have been 302 reports of the glass tumblers shattering,” says Fort Myers defective products attorney Scot D. Goldberg. “People have suffered severe cuts and burns as a result of using this unsafe consumer product”.
People who have the tumblers are encouraged to immediately contact Teavana at 877-261-1509 to arrange a replacement.
