Ikea has issued an urgent recall for some of its most popular kitchenware, amid fears it might break during use and cause serious injury.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission issued the notice on Monday for several Heroisk and Talrika plastic products.

“The product may break during use,” the Product Safety website said.

“If the product breaks when it is filled with hot liquid, this can increase the risk of burns, scalding or serious injury.”
