Starbucks Corp. is recalling about 530,000 coffee grinders because they either can turn on unexpectedly or fail to turn off, posing a risk of injury. The Starbucks Barista Blade Grinders and Seattle’s Best Coffee Blade Grinders that are being recalled were sold in Starbucks and Seattle’s Best Coffee stores between March 2002 and March 2009. The Seattle-based coffee company said it had received 176 reports of the grinders malfunctioning, including three reports of hand lacerations because the grinders turned on unexpectedly during cleaning.
The coffee grinders cost about $30 and were manufactured in China. Starbucks said customers should stop using the grinders immediately and contact Starbucks for a free replacement grinder. More information is available on the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Web site, www.cpsc.gov.
