Ikea recalls LYDA jumbo cup due to burn hazard

Ikea is recalling a faulty cup, called the LYDA jumbo cup, after receiving reports of injuries to users from Europe. The company said it has received 20 overseas reports of the cup breaking, including 10 reports of injuries caused by scalding. None of the cases were from Singapore.

The Swedish furniture retailer said in a press release on Wednesday that the cups can break when hot liquid is poured into them, creating a burn hazard.

The stoneware cup with a white base and flower print costing $7.90, was sold between August last year and April 26 this year. No other Ikea cups are affected by the recall.

The store is offering a full refund upon return. Customers may return the cups at the exchange and returns counters at either Ikea Tampines or Ikea Alexandra. Customers may call 6786-6868 for more information.
