Bunn-O-Matic Corp. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced an extension of a voluntary recall of about 561,000 Bunn(R) home coffeemakers. This recall is an expansion of an earlier recall announced in June 2005.

The coffeemaker's plastic pour-in bowl and lid can melt or ignite due to an electrical failure, posing burn and fire hazards to consumers. The company has received 16 additional incident reports involving the bowl or lid melting or igniting in these units, including seven reports of minor property damage. No injuries have been reported.

The recall involves coffeemakers with model numbers GR-10B, GR-10W, B-10B, B-10W, and BT-10B (including any of those same model numbers ending in the additional letter D) with six-digit date codes ending in "04" with the two middle digits between "21" and "52" or ending in "05" with the two middle digits between "01" and "40." If the date code has a seventh digit, consumers should ignore the last digit and use the first six digits. The model number and date code are stamped on a small white or silver sticker on the bottom of the coffeemaker. The 10-cup Bunn coffeemakers have either a black or white plastic base and top, and measure 14 1/4-inches high by 7-inches wide by 13 3/4 -inches deep. The coffeemakers were sold at department and hardware stores nationwide between May 2004 and January 2006 for about U.S. $100.
