General Electric Coffee Maker Recall

General Electric is recalling some of its coffee makers because of a possible fire hazard.

Almost 900,000 GE 12-cup digital coffee makers are being recalled because they can overheat and possibly catch on fire and burn consumers.

Walmart has received 83 reports of overheating, smoking, melting, burning and fire, including three reports of minor burn injuries to consumer's hands, feet and torso.

Reports of property damage include a significant kitchen fire and damage to counter-tops, cabinets and a wall.

The coffee makers were sold exclusively at Walmart stores between March 2008 and January 2010 for around $30.

If you have one of the recalled coffee makers, you should return it to Walmart for a full refund.
