French Press Coffee-Maker Burn Lawsuit Ends in Big Settlement

French Press Coffee-Maker Burn Lawsuit Ends in Big Settlement

May 24, 2021 — The maker of a popular French press coffee-maker has paid a sizable settlement to the family of a girl who was burned when it broke.

The child was burned by a French press that was manufactured by Bodum USA Inc., according to Law360.

The terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but the girl’s parents said that the settlement was “substantial” and will pay for college, ongoing medical needs, and cover her needs until she turns 30.

The lawsuit was filed by John and Michelle G. on behalf of their 10-year-old daughter who was burned when the family’s Bodum Chambord 8-cup French Press broke on January 23, 2018.

As the girl pressed down the plunger on the coffee-maker, a piece of glass broke and she was covered in scalding-hot liquid.

Since 2014, Starbucks and Bodum have issued multiple recalls for defective French press coffee makers that pose injury risks, including burn injury risks and laceration hazards.

The settlement was approved on May 19, 2021. The lawsuit was filed on January 16, 2019 in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California — Case Number 3:19-cv-01069.
