In cooperation with The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, The Holmes Group Inc., of Milford, MA, U.S. is recalling 1.8 million of its Rival slow cookers

Consumers have been advised to stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. The handles on the base of the slow cookers can break, posing a risk of burns from hot contents spilling onto consumers. CPSC has received 45 reports of handles breaking, including 14 reports of consumers who reported burn injuries from the hot contents.

Only Rival Crock-Pot(R) slow cookers with model numbers 3040, 3735, 5025, 5070 and 5445 manufactured before May 2002 are included in the recall.

The recalled appliances were manufactured in China and sold in U.S. at Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target, and additional discount department stores from January 1999 through May 2002 for between U.S. $15 and $40.
