After dozens of injury reports, the U.S. Department of Justice and the Consumer Product Safety Commission filed a lawsuit against the maker of the SpaceMaker coffee pot. The complaint, filed in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin, alleges that SpaceMaker coffee pots’ handles can be dangerous. This lawsuit aims to ensure that consumers are safe from these hazards. In addition, it could help consumers get compensation for their losses.
A CPSC lawsuit against Black and Decker-brand coffeemakers is now underway. These coffeemakers, which have been sold under the Spacemaker name, were recalled due to potential burn hazards. The coffeemaker’s glass carafe, which holds the ground coffee, can become detached from the handle, causing a burn. This can lead to serious injury or death. However, there are steps consumers can take to prevent the problem before it becomes an issue.
The CPSC says the faulty handles of the coffeemaker were the main cause of several injuries. As a result, the CPSC has decided to impose civil penalties. The company says the civil penalties violate the Due Process Clause of the Constitution. The CPSC also argues that imposing civil penalties for safety defect violate the duty to report.
