Applica Consumer Products Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about 420,000 Black & Decker(R) Brand thermal coffee makers. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
The coffee maker may not turn off as programmed, causing the unit to overheat and melt, and posing a risk of fire and burn injury. Applica has received 14 reports of the coffeemakers overheating. This resulted in one report of a minor burn, and 12 reports of minor property damage to kitchen cabinets, countertops and floors.
The recalled coffee makers make up to 8-cups of coffee and have a programmable countertop feature. The coffee makers are silver and black with a stainless steel carafe. Model numbers TCM800 and TCM805 are printed on the rating plate on the bottom of the coffee maker.
Consumers should stop using the product immediately and contact Applica for instructions on receiving a replacement Black & Decker Brand household product.
