Ikea is recalling a range of plates, bowls and mugs over fears that they could burn owners.

The "Heroisk" and "Talrika" ranges have been available to consumers since 2019 and come in a variety of colours including; yellow, green, pink and blue.

They are now subject to a product recall due to their potential to rapidly degrade and break, potentially causing hot food and drinks to spill, posing a burning hazard to consumers.

There has been 123 reported breakages worldwide, with four leading to injuries. The Swedish retailer is yet to reveal how many products in the UK have been recalled, but a total of 148,000 units have been recalled in the United States.

In a statement Ikea said: "We apologize for any inconvenience and appreciate your cooperation."

Which products have been recalled?
