IKEA announces recall of the RUND handmade glass mug

TORONTO, Jan. 18 /CNW/ - IKEA has announced a recall on the RUND handmade glass mug.  There have been no reported cases of injury in Canada.  Globally, IKEA has received twelve reports of RUND glass mugs that have broken in use. Five of the reports stated that minor injury had occurred.
