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.

    if you do not have your receipt Wal Mart will only refund you the price it was last sold for in the store you return it to in my case $18.70, I paid about 34.00 with tax.

    That is good information, thank you. The country is in the position its in because of all the items that are shipped into the country.

    That's because the production of the product was shipped out of the country to "save money" and put thousands of GE employees out of work and on the unemployment line. "Brings good things to life"??? HAHAHAHAHAHA!!! My husband is getting ready to lose his job because they can get lightbulbs made in Mexico or Hungary for much cheaper. You're right WHAT YOU EXPECT.. Ge isn't what they use to be, but it's not because of the blue collar laborers. It's b/c of the money hingry exec's that are running the company. Ever wonder why your regular light bulbs don't last for long?? Made in another country!

    Apparently grammar is not what it used to be, either.
