CreaMiser Refrigerated Creamer Dispensers Recalled for Fire Hazard
A company that makes refrigerated-creamer dispensers issued a recall following seven incidents, two of which resulted in a fire.
CreaMiser is recalling about 5,600 refrigerated-creamer dispensers that have a relay inside that can overheat. There have been two fires at repair facilities and the thermometer melted in five dispensers.
The recall includes model numbers 200, 210 and 400 CreMiser dispensers made for commercial use. Models 200 and 210 have two creamer dispenser stations and model 400 has four creamer dispenser stations. Model, serial number and 'CreaMiser Products Corporation' are printed on a white sticker or metal name plate on the back of the dispensers.
A complete list of serial numbers can be found on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website.
They were sold by distributors nationwide to convenience stores, quick-serve restaurants, hospital and workplace cafeterias, college food service facilities and hotels and motels from January 2001 through November 2003 for about $990 for the two-dispenser models and about $1,235 for the four-dispenser models.
Owners should immediately unplug the recalled creamer dispensers, remove them from service and contact CreaMiser for a free repair.
