Product Recall: Coffee Machine Electric Shock Risk

Water may leak onto the electric parts of the La Cucina coffee machine, causing electric shock. There are two models of the La Cucina Capsule Coffee Machine (model numbers CXY-CO01, CXY-CO01B), which pose a safety hazard, according to a product recall notice issued by ACCC. 

"Water may leak onto the electric port and users could receive a minor electric shock when touching the coffee selection knob" the notice states. If the defect occurs, users may receive an electric shock during use.

The offending coffee machines were sold for a year - from 15 September 12 - 19 September 2013, at BIG W stores nationally.
