The company says at least one person has required medical attention for lacerations after using RUND clear glass mugs. IKEA says it has received an additional 11 reports outside of the U.S., four of which resulted in injury.

The glasses affected were sold at IKEA stores nationwide from Oct. 2009 through March 2010.

The company said it is offering full refunds to customers who return the glasses to an IKEA location.
