In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), electric housewares maker The Holmes Group announced the voluntary recall of approximately 2.6 million units of its Rival(R) slow cookers.

The slow cookers, sold from January 1999 through May 2002, were previously recalled for the same hazard. The recall has now been expanded to include all units manufactured before September 2004.

According to the company, the handles on the base of the slow cookers can break, posing a risk of burns from hot contents spilling onto consumers. Consumers were advised to stop using recalled products immediately.

CPSC has received a total of 126 reports of handles breaking, including 33 reports of consumers who reported burn injuries from the hot contents of these slow cookers.

The recall includes Rival Crock-Pot(R) slow cookers with model numbers 3040, 3735, 5025, 5070, and 5445. The recalled Rival slow cooker has a removable ceramic bowl that sits inside of a metal base. A date code is stamped on the side of one prong of the power plug. Any plug with a date code from 0199 (1st week of 1999) to 3504 (35th week of 2004) is included in this recall or the previous recall.

The slow cookers were sold at Wal-Mart, Kmart, Target, and additional discount department stores throughout the U.S. from January 1999 to May 2005 for between U.S. $15 and $40.
