IKEA recall of HEROISK and TALRIKA bowls, plates, and mugs

May 25, 2021

IKEA Ireland is carrying out a voluntary recall of is HEROISK and TALRIKA bowls, plates, and mugs.

The affected products were sold between August 2019 and May 2021.

A safety issue has been identified with the affected products, where the products can break after some time of use and potentially cause serious burns, due to hot contents. Both HEROISK and TALRIKA are made of PLA (Polylactic acid or polylactide). PLA is a new material to IKEA, and the material is not suitable for everyday meals with hot food. The combination of microwave and dishwasher usage also impacts the products durability.

There have been 14,940 of the HEROISK products, and 2,901 of the TALRIKA products sold in the Republic of Ireland.

What to do:

IKEA urges all customers to immediately stop using all HEROISK and TALRIKA bowls, plates and mugs and return them to IKEA for a full refund. No proof of purchase is needed.
