Starbucks Recalls 8-cup Barista Aroma Coffee Brewers

Starbucks Corp. is recalling about 73,000 Barista Aroma stainless steel eight-cup coffee brewers sold at retail outlets because of a potential fire hazard. These are coffee brewers, not espresso machines, but I thought I would post it just in case you espresso-heads picked one up in your recent trip to the corner Starbucks.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Seattle-based Starbucks said the coffee brewer has defective electrical wiring that can result in overheating, smoking, burning and melting. Starbucks has received 23 reports of melting in the units but no reports of injuries. The $100 coffee brewers were sold between March 2005 and September 2006. The recall only affects the eight-cup coffee Starbucks Barista Aroma brewer, not 12-cup or single-cup brewers, Starbucks says.
