If you own an espresso maker from IKEA, you might want to see if it is included in a voluntary recall from the company.

The Metallisk espresso maker for cooktop 0.4L with a stainless steel safety valve could burst during use.

The impacted products have date stamps between 2040 and 2204.

“The risk has increased after a change of material and construction of the safety valve,” said IKEA in a media release. “Only the products with the stainless steel safety valve (silver/grey in colour) are included in the recall.”

The company urges consumers to stop using the espresso maker and return it to the store for a full refund.

“Proof of purchase is not required, and there is no limit to when the product can be returned,” said IKEA.
