Walgreens coffeemakers recalled for catching fire

According to the South Florida Sun Sentinel, a Fort Lauderdale distribution company has voluntarily recalled 500,000 coffeemakers, sold exclusively at Walgreens drug stores nationwide, following reports of the products igniting. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said Atico International USA had received 23 reports of the appliances catching fire due to an electrical failure, causing property damage but no injuries.

The products were made in China. Two (2) models are involved: the Kitchen Gourmet 10-cup white coffeemaker, with model number XQ-673K; and the Signature Gourmet 12-cup programmable black coffeemaker, with model numbers XQ-673BT or CM4193D. They were sold in Walgreens between August 2006 and December 2008 for between $10 and $20.

Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using these coffeemakers.
