The coffeemakers were sold in white or black models with the words “BLACK & DECKER SPACEMAKER” printed on the top right-hand corner, a digital clock on the top left-hand corner and five round buttons above the water reservoir.

Model numbers affected by the recall include SDC740, SDC740B, SDC740BR, SDC740C, SDC740DIS, SDC740R, SDC750, SDC750C and SDC750DIS. The model numbers are located on the bottom of the coffeemaker, below the reservior.
