The following product safety alert is from the CPSC on May 19, 2015.

Precision Trading is recalling PREMIUM® Espresso Makers because the filler cap at the top of the unit can crack and allow steam to escape, posing a risk of burns to the user. In addition, the cap can pop off unexpectedly as a result of pressure buildup, posing a risk of injury to a bystander. The firm has received one report of a consumer who sustained burns to her arm when the cap unexpectedly released steam from the espresso maker.
This recall involves Precision Trading Corp.’s PREMIUM® four-cup Espresso Makers manufactured in September 2014 and November 2014. The recalled units have model number PEM585 and product date code "0914" or "1114" printed on a rating label affixed to the bottom of the espresso maker. The Premium logo is printed on the bottom front of the espresso maker. Espresso makers with "2015" marked on the cap are not included in this recall.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled espresso makers and contact Precision Trading Corp. to request a free replacement cap. Consumers can contact Precision Trading Corp. at (800) 477-4501 from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, by email at recall@precisiontrading.com or visit the firm’s website at www.premiumus.com and click on Recall Information for more information.
These were sld at BrandMart U.S.A. and other retail stores in Florida and Puerto Rico between November 2014 and February 2015 for about $30.
