Recall issued for Teavana tea tumblers

If you have a glass Teavana tea tumbler, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission wants you to return it to where you bought it because there have been reports of users suffering cuts and burns.

The Washington, D.C.-based federal safety commission issued the national voluntary recall Thursday afternoon, along with the warning that it is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

The tumblers are sold locally at the Teavana store at The Greene in Beavercreek. There are 10 other stores throughout Ohio, from Mentor to Cincinnati.

According to the safety commission, Teavana has received approximately 302 reports of the glass breaking or shattering, including six reports of lacerations and burns when the tumblers broke during use.

Injuries include cut fingers and legs and burned toes.

When you return your tumbler, you’ll receive a free replacement metallic tumbler and a complimentary 2 oz. package of Opus Rouge Rooibos Tea, according to the safety commission.

Consumers returning tumblers or glasses sold as part of sets will receive a replacement tumbler and package of tea for each tumbler or glass in that set.

Consumers may also mail the tumblers or glasses to Teavana by calling the company and requesting a pre-paid mailer that will be sent at no cost to the consumer for returning the recalled tumblers or glasses. A free replacement metallic tumbler plus the complimentary tea will be sent at no charge upon receipt of the returned tumblers or glasses.

For more information, contact Teavana toll-free at (877) 261-1509 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday (or other times to leave a message), or visit the company’s website.
