In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Bunn-O-Matic Corp., of Springfield, IL, U.S. has recalled about 1.75 million Bunn(R) coffee makers.
Consumers were advised to stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. The coffeemaker’s plastic pour-in bowl and lid can melt or ignite due to an electrical failure, posing a burn and fire hazard to consumers. Bunn-O-Matic has received 17 reports of the bowl or lid melting, though no injuries have been reported.
The recall involves Bunn home 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 01, 02, or 03. Also involved in the recall are the same models with dates codes ending in 04 and middle digits between 01 and 21. The 10-cup coffee makers have either a black or white plastic base and top, and measure 14 1/4-in high by 7-in wide by 13 3/4-in deep.
The recalled appliances were manufactured in the U.S. and sold at department and hardware stores in the region between February 2001 and August 2004 for about U.S. $100.
