Beloved furniture and homeware store (depending on how well you can put things together), IKEA voluntarily recalled dinnerware sets in America after it was determined the items were a potential risk of burns.
The company issued a warning for bowls, plates and mugs in its Heroisk and Talrika collections. “Bowls, plates and cups can become brittle and break, causing hot food or liquids to spill and pose a risk of burns,” the company said in a statement.

The dishes are partly made of polylactic acid, which can be easily shaped and broken if the heat is too high.
Of the 148,000 incidents sold to date in the US, only one incident (no injuries) has been reported.
According to IKEA, the panels in question went on sale online and in stores across the United States as of August 2019.
The company will also provide full refunds to customers who purchased part of the two sets, provided customers return the parts to the nearest IKEA store. There are currently 52 IKEA locations in the US.
