NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Bodum announced a recall for the Chambord espresso pot Tuesday (April 23), due to fire and burn hazards.

The recall was issued after a report was made that the handle of the stove-top coffee pot caught fire from the flame of a gas stove. No injuries were reported, according to Bodum, the product’s manufacturer.

Consumers are recommended to immediately stop using the espresso makers and return them for a full refund. To do so, either bring the product back to the location it was purchased or contact Bodum for a prepaid package to mail it in, also for a full refund.

The recalled product is a 6-cup pot with stainless steel finish and SKU number 10617-16, which appears on the packaging. The word “Bodum” is embossed on the lower half of the pot. They were nationwide from January 2017 through January 2019 for about $70.
