Take stock of what's in those cabinets: an IKEA recall has just been issued for two lines of of kitchen items that could potentially cause injury.
According to the announcement, IKEA HEROISK and TALRIKA bowls, plates, and mugs sold in-store and online from August 2019 to May 2021 are part of the voluntary recall. So even if your spring cleaning has wrapped up for the year, another peruse of your shelves is encouraged.
The products are made with PLA, polylactic acid or polylactide material, which has the potential to become brittle and subsequently break when hot food or liquids are placed inside.
This, in turn, has the potential to cause burn-inducing leaks. However, per the statement, "only one incident, without injury, occurred in the United States."

Which products are part of the IKEA recall?
Wondering if your items are the ones in question? Here are a few things to note: the product name (HEROISK and TALRIKA), supplier number 23348, "Made in Taiwan," and "PLA" are all molded on the bottom of each trinket, so you'll easily be able to identify if you need to return any of your IKEA goods for a refund.
HEROISK bowls, plates, and mugs were each sold in a pack of two, while TALRIKA bowls, plates, and mugs were each sold in a pack of four, and the original prices ranged from $3.99–$11.99.
How do you return recalled IKEA goods?
If you do happen to come across a few of these products in your home, there's good news: you can earn a full refund without a receipt.
All you need to do is bring the products from HEROISK and TALRIKA lines back to your local store, and the team will do the rest.
If you have any additional questions or concerns, you can reach out to IKEA on 888-966-4532.
