CPSC, Krups Announce Recall of Coffeemakers

WASHINGTON, D.C.- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Krups North America, of Closter, N.J., is voluntarily recalling about 218,000 automatic drip coffeemakers. An electrical connection in these coffeemakers can overheat and ignite the filter basket support, presenting a risk of fire and burn hazard to consumers.

Krups has received 37 reports of the coffeemakers overheating, including 12 reports of fire and smoke damage to cabinets, countertops and surrounding objects. No injuries have been reported.

The automatic drip coffeemakers were sold under the Krups brand name. The 10 cup coffeemakers have a switch for selecting 1-3 cups or 4- 10 cups, and a "Stop N' Serve" feature. Only models 398 with a black or white exterior and 405 with a simulated wood-grain exterior are included in this recall. The model numbers are on the bottom of the coffeemaker. Department, appliance and specialty stores nationwide sold the coffeemakers from January 1996 through April 2000 for about $95.

Consumers should unplug and stop using the coffeemakers immediately and contact Krups North America at (800) 810-8687 anytime to receive a free replacement coffeemaker.
