GE Coffee Makers Recalled Due to Fire Hazard

May 25, 2010  ·  By HM&M


It was just recently announced that “nearly 1 million General Electric coffee makers sold at Walmart are being recalled after dozens of reports of overheating, smoking, burning and fires. (AP Washington, 5/20). The Consumer Product Safety Commission stated Walmart has received upwards of 80 complaints about the coffee maker, including a few reports of minor burns.

In addition to bodily injuries, the accident reports include reports of property damage – a significant kitchen fire and damage to countertops, cabinets and a wall.

The recall involves GE 12-cup digital coffee makers sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide, and “consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled coffee makers and return the product to any Walmart for a full refund.” As a personal injury attorney in Chicago, I urge consumers to rid their kitchens of these coffee makers immediately.
