The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Whirlpool announced a voluntary recall of about 529,000 KitchenAid(R) coffeemakers, distributed by Whirlpool Corp., of Benton Harbor, MI, U.S.

An internal electrical component of the coffeemaker can overheat and ignite, posing a fire hazard to consumers. Whirlpool has received 13 reports of incidents involving coffeemakers overheating resulting in minor property damage. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled coffeemakers are black, white, red, or blue in color. They are manufactured in 10- and 12-cup models. Consumers can determine if they have one of the recalled coffeemakers by identifying the product's model and serial numbers, which are located on a label on the bottom of the coffeemaker. The affected models include: 10 - cup models are KCM120OB, KCM300OB, KCM120WH, and KCM300WH; and 12 - cup models are KCM200OB, KCM400OB, KCM200WH, KCM400WH, KCM400ER, and KCM400BU. The serial numbers of the affected products begin with the letters WCJ, WCK, WCL, WCM, and WCP.

The products were sold through catalogs, department stores, specialty retailers, and on-line retailers nationwide from January 1999 through December 2004 for between U.S. $50 and $130. The coffeemakers are manufactured in China.

Consumers should unplug and stop using the coffeemakers immediately and contact KitchenAid(R) for a free comparable coffeemaker model or an exchange for another KitchenAid(R) product. Consumers should not return the coffeemaker to the retailer where it was purchased. (CPSC)
