Applica Consumer Products has announced a recall of an additional 641 Black & Decker Spacemaker 12-Cup Programmable Under-the-Cabinet Coffeemakers (159,000 units were previously recalled in June 2012).

The coffee pot handle on the recalled coffeemakers can break, causing cuts and burns to the consumer.

The recalled coffeemaker is designed to mount under a cabinet. It is available in white or black and has the words 'BLACK & DECKER SPACEMAKER' printed in the top right-hand corner of the product. The coffeemakers have a digital time display in the top left corner and five round buttons above the water reservoir for programming.

The 12-cup coffee pots are glass with a molded handle the same color as the machine and a silver metallic bracket running around the glass near the bottom. The model number is printed on the underside of the coffeemaker, directly below the water reservoir. Model number SDC 740 was previously recalled with other eight models in 2012. After the recall announcement, an additional 641 units continued to be sold.

The recalled Black & Decker Spacemaker coffeemakers were sold at True Value Hardware stores nationwide from July 2008 to June 2013.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled coffeemakers and contact Applica Consumer Products for a full refund.
