The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with West Bend Housewares LLC, announced a voluntary recall of about 14,000 10-Cup Coffeemaker Carafes and Replacement Carafes. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

The carafe handle can unexpectedly loosen or break, resulting in the carafe falling. This can cause burn injuries from hot coffee or lacerations from broken glass. West Bend Housewares has received 194 reports of the handles breaking, including three reports of consumers receiving burns to their hands and arms.

The carafe is a 10-cup capacity glass pot with a black, plastic handle. It is used with the West Bend Housewares 10-cup Automatic Coffeemaker. The 10-cup replacement carafe was sold separately. There is a four-digit date code printed on the bottom of the coffeemaker. Date codes beginning with 04 are included in this recall.

The coffeemakers were sold at AAFES, Dillards, Bi-Mart, and retail stores that sell housewares from July 2004 through July 2005 for about U.S. $32. The replacement carafe was sold separately for about $8.

Consumers should stop using the recalled carafes immediately and contact West Bend Housewares to receive a replacement carafe free of charge.
