Product recalls are issued when a retailer or brand has found a fault with an item. This means that it is unsafe for customers to use and so it is withdrawn from shelves. If a customer has already bought the item, they must usually return it to a store for a full refund.

Various shops have issued product recalls over the past month, including B&Q, Argos and more.

Ikea is the latest store to declare that some of its products are unsafe to use.

The Swedish homeware company has warned customers against using its HEROISK and TALRIKA plates, bowls, mugs, and side plates if they have already bought them online or in store.

Ikea is withdrawing the products from its shelves and asking shoppers to return the items to their local store.

The kitchen products were sold between August 2019 and May 2019.

Coming in various colours, Ikea has told customers to stop using the plates, bowls, and mugs.

This is because the company has received reports of the items breaking, potentially causing burns if filled with hot contents.

The products have already been withdrawn from stores and online.

On its website, Ikea said: “Customers are kindly asked to return them to an IKEA store for a full refund.

“Proof of purchase (receipt) is not required.”

For more information, customers can visit Ikea’s website or contact its customer service helpline on 0203 645 0010.

The company added: “We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.”

The affected products are green, yellow, red, blue, dark blue, and white.

All of them are either HEROISK or TALRIKA mugs, side plates, plates, or bowls.

It is relatively uncommon for Ikea to issue a product recall, its last one being in January 2020.

At the time, the TROLIGTVIS travel mug was affected because Ikea received test reports showing that the product may migrate levels of Dibutyl phthalate (DBP) exceeding the recommended limits.

In other product recall news, TIME Cables recently issued a product recall on an item sold at B&Q and Tradepoint.

The products affected are the TIME Cable 2 Core Flexible Cables, which come in white, black, gold, orange, and white.

The cables are also various sizes, with the five metre, 10 metre, and 25 metre versions affected.

TIME Cables issued a safety notice on these products, telling customers to “immediately” stop using the item if they have already bought one.
