Applica Consumer Products is recalling about 584,000 Black & Decker Spacemaker Coffeemakers due to a burn hazard.
Miramar-based Applica said the brew basket can shift out of alignment, allowing hot water to verflow. This poses a scalding and burn hazard to consumers.
The company said it has received 235 reports of hot water overflowing, including 10 reports of second-degree burns.
The recalled 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 is located on the back of the coffeemaker.
Never miss a local story.
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.
