In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Avanti Products Inc. of Miami, FL, U.S. has recalled about 124,000 water dispensers.

Consumers were advised to stop using recalled products due to the possible malfunction of a child-resistant safety feature on the hot water faucet. The device can malfunction so that the faucet will not turn off, causing burn injuries to children. Avanti has received 10 reports of the hot water not shutting off, nine of which resulted in burn injuries to children, including a 10-month-old baby who suffered burns on his arm and chest.

Six water dispenser models with hot water faucets are included in the recall. The water dispensers have model numbers WD32, WD 50, WD 50.1, WDT51, WDR 52, or WHC 59. Model number WDR 52 is a combination refrigerator and water dispenser. All six models have removable drip trays and can hold either 3- or 5-gal bottles of water.

The recalled units were manufactured in China, but were sold in the U.S. at Office Depot, Staples, and other appliance and electronic stores from July 2000 August 2004 for between U.S. $120 and $250.
