Recall: Home Soda Machines Recalled by Drinkmaker of Sweden AB
There have been three reports of incidents: a 7-year-old boy suffered lacerations to the neck and arms that required hospitalization; a 44-year-old man suffered multiple fractures and a laceration to his right hand; and a 52-year-old man suffered lacerations to his right hand and chin, a fracture of the little finger and contusions to the stomach. The recalled soda machines are shaped like coffee makers, with a white exterior and a black lid, under which a carbon dioxide container and mixing ingredients are placed. The model name, "Drink Master," "Drink Maker," "The Drink Machine," or "The Carbonator" is printed in black on the front of the machine. Under the lid are the words "Made in Sweden." The soda makers were sold at state and county fairs and conventions between 1990 and 1996 for about $200 to $250.
Consumers should stop using these soda machines immediately and call The Soft Drink Company, of Seattle, Washington, toll-free at (877) 438-7632 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday to receive a free repair. Unused machines should be discarded to prevent the possibility of injury.
Soda machines sold after 1996 are not being recalled.
