IMUSA Recalls Espresso Makers for Burn Hazard

IMUSA is recalling espresso makers for a burn hazard. The filler cap at the top of the unit can crack and let steam escape, posing a burn hazard. The cap can also pop off unexpectedly and suddenly because of pressure buildup, posing an impact injury risk.

The recall is for IMUSA espresso makers.┬áThe black or gray and black espresso makers have model numbers GAU-18200 and GAU-18201. The caps on the recalled espresso makers have date codes “201407” to “201411.” The model number and date code are printed on a rating label on the bottom of the espresso maker. “IMUSA” is printed on the front of the espresso maker.

The firm has received 43 incident reports, including one report of a consumer who burned his hand from steam coming through a crack in the cap. Consumers should immediately stop using these espresso makers and contact IMUSA for a free replacement filler cap.

About 17,500 of these espresso makers were sold at Kmart, Sears, Target and other stores nationwide from July 2014 through November 2014 for between $30 and $45. The product was manufactured in China.
