Earlier this year, certain glass tumblers sold by Dunkin’ Donuts were included in a recall from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The recall included approximately 8,300 16 ounce tumblers that can be used for hot or cold drinks. The risks associated with the tumblers is from cracks or breaks in the glass, which poses burn and laceration hazards.
The three glass tumbler styles included in the Dunkin’ Donuts recall are:
- Clear glass with pink plastic lid and “BUT FIRST, DUNKIN” in white font
- Clear glass with orange plastic lid and “BUT FIRST, DUNKIN” in white font
- Plaid gray and black pattern with silicone grip showing “DD” embossed on the front
Each of the three styles are about 8 inches in height and have a diameter of about 3 inches. They would have been sold in stores anytime between September and November 2016 at a cost of $13-$15.
Thus far, Dunkin’ Donuts has received at least 19 reports of tumblers breaking. Fortunately, no injuries have yet been reported. Even so, consumers should cease use immediately.
If you believe your tumbler is defective and possibly included in this recall, contact Dunkin’ Donuts at www.dunkindonuts.com for a full refund. You may also return them to the store where originally purchased for a recall.
We are grateful that Dunkin’ Donuts chose to voluntarily recall these tumblers even without reported injuries. When it comes to consumer safety, it is always better to err on the side of caution. This assists in preventing companies and manufacturers from being held liable in legal suits for injuries and damages.
