The machines were sold under the following makes and model numbers:

  • West Bend -- 65032
  • Back to Basics -- CM300BK, CM300BKL, CM300BLSS, CM300BR, CM300BRBRL CM300BRL, CM300W

The only affected products are the Cocoa Latte Hot Drink Makers, makes and model numbers listed above. The Cocoa Grande Hot Drink Maker is NOT affected by this recall.

The affected products, which shipped nationwide from 2004 through October 12, 2012, come in a variety of colors with transparent pitchers, and were sold primarily in the United States through various retailers such as Bed Bath & Beyond, through various e-retailers such as Amazon.com and through Focus Products’ online store.
