Morris Plains, NJ—J & H International, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, voluntarily recalled Kitchentrend Stainless Steel Carafes due to burn hazards they pose. The CPSC announced the product safety recall, which affects approximately 36,000 units, on Tuesday, Nov. 23, 2010.
While no injuries or adverse events have been reported in connection with the defective carafes, the New Jersey-based importer initiated the recall upon discovering that the handle can detach. If this occurs, liquid can potentially spill out of the carafes and burn consumers.
According to the CPSC news release, “This recall involves the Kitchentrend 1-liter stainless steel carafes with model number P0930-X02. The insulated carafe has a chrome-plated plastic top with a black plastic base and is lined with glass. “Kitchentrend” and the model number can be found on the packaging.”
The risky carafes were made available for purchase at Macy’s and Macys.com between September 2010 and October 2010. The product cost about $20.
Consumers have been urged to cease use of the carafes to avoid potential burns. The product may be returned to the place of purchase for a full reimbursement.
Individuals with questions or concerns are advised to contact J & H International at (800) 770-3214 anytime.
