Mass recall of popular reusable coffee cups

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Reusable coffee cup manufacturer Biopak has issued a recall for some products, due to the possibility of part of the cup detaching when liquid is present.

The Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (MBIE) issued the recall on September 30, advising people to stop using it immediately as a user could be burnt or scalded.

What you need to know:

- Contact Biopak or ring 0800 246 725 to get a refund on faulty items.

- The products were sold from January 2013 to September 2020

- All resuable coffee cups (8oz, 12oz, 16oz) in plain green or white should be
returned to Biopak.

- Those with custom names “SexieCoffie”, “Columbit”, “Echo”, “Hedland”, “Crop to Cup” or “Home Grain”. Should be returned immediately.

To find out more about this recall, see the government recall website.
