Be on the lookout for the illy recall as illycaffé North America of Rye Brook, N.Y., has recalled nearly 65,000 illy 8.8-ounce whole bean coffee cans
Consumer Affairs reports that the coffee bean can lid can detach suddenly with force upon opening when missing an air valve on the bottom, posing an injury hazard.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves only Whole Bean 250 gram/8.8 ounce cans of illy coffee in a medium, dark roast and decaf with no air valve on the bottom of the canister with a best by date of 10/2019, 11/2019, or 12/2019 printed on the bottom of the can.
The silver, cylinder-shaped coffee cans have the “illy” logo printed on the front with a red, black or green-colored accent line across the top and bottom of the can.
The coffee cans, manufactured in Italy, were sold at Bed Bath & Beyond, Kroger, Shoprite, Sur La Table, Target, Whole Foods, Williams Sonoma, and other stores nationwide and online at Amazon.com and Jet.com from November 2017, through May 2018, for about $15.
