Coffeemaker recalled over fire hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Signature Gourmet 12-cup programmable coffeemakers and Kitchen Gourmet 10-cup coffeemakers over a possible fire hazard.

These coffeemakers can ignite due to an electrical failure.

Florida-based Atico International USA, Inc. has received 23 reports of coffeemakers igniting, resulting in property damage. No injuries have been reported.

About 500,000 of the coffeemakers were sold across the United States at Walgreens stores from June 2004 through March 2009.

Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using the recalled coffeemaker and contact Atico International USA for instructions on returning the product for a full refund.
