Applica Consumer Products Inc., of Miramar, Florida, has recalled Black & Decker® brand Spacemaker™ Coffeemakers. The brew basket can shift out of alignment allowing hot water to overflow. This poses a scalding and burn hazard to consumers. The firm has received 235 reports of hot water overflowing and coming into contact with consumers, including ten reports of second-degree burns. The product has an under-cabinet mount, programmable digital clock/timer, removable water reservoir, and either a 12-cup glass carafe or an 8-cup thermal carafe.
Only model numbers ODC440, ODC440B, ODC450 and ODC460 are included in the recall. The model number can be located on the back of the coffeemaker. The coffeemakers were sold at major retailers nationwide, including K-Mart, Kohl’s, Target, Wal-Mart, Bed, Bath & Beyond, and Amazon.com, from March 2006 through March 2009 for between $60 and $70. Consumers should stop using the recalled coffeemaker immediately and contact Applica for a free replacement brew basket.
