Applica Consumer Products Incorporated, in response to a request from the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, has announced a voluntary recall for an estimated 159,000 Black & Decker Spacemaker 12-Cup Programmable Under-the-Cabinet Coffeemakers. The distributor, headquartered in Miramar, Florida, has issued this recall in response to the 1,276 consumer complaints related to a possible injury risk posed by the coffeemaker’s pot handle breaking during regular use. Consumers reported nearly 70 cases of burns or lacerations caused by the handle’s unexpected breaking. Coffeemakers affected by this recall are 12-cup coffeemakers designed to be mounted beneath a cabinet. They are available in black or white models and can be distinguished by the words “Black & Decker Spacemaker” imprinted in the coffeemaker’s upper right hand corner opposite the unit’s digital clock. Above the water reservoir, the unit has five circular buttons, and the unit’s 12-cup coffee pot is glass with a molded plastic handle that matches the coffeemaker. A silver metallic bracket runs around the bottom of the glass pot. Coffeemakers affected by this recall have one of the following serial numbers imprinted directly below the water reservoir on the unit’s underside: SDC750DIS, SDC740BR, SDC740B, SDC740C, SDC740DIS, SDC750, SDC740R, SDC740 or SDC750C. The Black & Decker Spacemaker 12-Cup Programmable Under-the-Cabinet Coffeemakers that pose this injury risk were sold at retail stores throughout the United States between July of 2008 and May of 2012. Consumers in possession of recalled coffeemakers should discontinue their use until a replacement coffee pot can be obtained from the manufacturer.
