This recall involves Bialetti coffee presses with a glass beaker in a plastic frame with a stainless steel metal plunger.

The Bialetti icon and logo are printed on each side of the frame and “Bialetti” is printed on the top of the plunger. The date stamp of March 2017 or earlier is printed on the underside of the plunger in a dial date code. (Dial date codes are read from the center of the circle outward.
