Forget actually drinking a cup of coffee to perk you up in the morning. If you own a certain Black & Decker Spacemaker coffeemaker, just grabbing the handle may jolt you awake, either by burning you or cutting your hand. The firm has received 1,276 reports of the pot handle breaking, including 68 injury reports of lacerations and burns. You'll need that caffeine fix to catch your tot if you put them in an Evenflo convertible high chair, 35,000 of which have been recalled because they pose a fall hazard to those in them. And if you have any nut allergens, you'll want to pass up OSKRI's Peach Granola for your breakfast fare, which was recalled because of undeclared cashews. So much for starting the day off right...
