Ikea recalls glass mugs due to laceration hazard
Ikea is asking customers who have a RUND glass mug to stop using the product immediately and bring it back to any store for a full refund.

The retail chain said it had received 12 reports of incidents involving the glass mugs, with five of the breakages resulting in injury. The products affected are two-packs of the 4cl, 21cl and 40cl glasses.

The products are being recalled across all of Ikea's markets, including the US, where a laceration caused by a RUND glass was reported to have required medical attention.
