Almost a quarter of a hundred thousand coffee maker machines were recalled by the authorities after finding that they potentially posed serious risks and danger to coffee lovers.
SOWTECH Coffee-making Machine Products Recalled Off The Market
According to online reports, the coffee-making product in question is SOWTECH’s coffee espresso machine. The company behind the product, LoHi Tech, has announced the recall in conjunction with the federal consumer rights office Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC).
Per estimates shared online, it is said that there are almost 25,000 units that were a part of the recall. They were ordered to be recalled after discovering that the SOWTECH espresso machine’s glass carafe component can break and cause harm. This may potentially result in very hot liquid spilling out of its confines and pose a possible burning risk to consumers.
A glass carafe is a component in the espresso machine that contains a vacuum space between two of its walls to ensure that the heat within will be maintained at all costs.
It is believed that more than forty people have reportedly experienced difficulties and accidents while using the SOWTECH espresso machines and that the glass carafe component unexpectedly explodes.
Although details were scarce regarding the injuries caused by the exploding incidents, an online video showed how much damage a defective SOWTECH espresso machine can incur to its users and their property.
The video shows a person detailing that their espresso machine caused their bathroom shower door to shatter.
Officials have warned customers that own a SOWTECH espresso machine to halt using them immediately and check out for further instructions on whether they are safe to use or not.
