Recall of the Week: Kaldi’s Coffee Roasting cup sleeves due to fire hazard

Kaldi-Coffee-Sleeves_800Kaldi’s Coffee Roasting Co. is recalling about 700,000 disposable cup sleeves.

The cup sleeve can ignite if used in a microwave, posing a fire hazard, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

Kaldi’s has received two reports of the cup sleeves catching fire when heated in the microwave. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves Kaldi’s Coffee disposable paper cup sleeves used with 12- and 16-ounce paper cups. The black paper cup sleeves have the “Kaldi’s Coffee” and the company logo printed on the front and “100% Recycled Paperboard” printed on the back.

The cup sleeves were sold at Kaldi’s Coffee Roasting stores in Missouri from February 2014 through March 2015 at no cost with hot drinks.

Consumers should immediately stop using and discard the recalled cup sleeves, the company and commission said.

For more information, call Kaldi’s toll-free at 888-892-6333 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or visit http://kaldiscoffee.com/ and click on “Recall.”
