In this Top 10 list, we reveal the recalls reporting the highest number of injuries at the time of recall. They include minor injuries such as bumps and bruises to more severe injuries such as cuts and skull fractures.

Interestingly, three of the top five CPSC recalls by number of injuries reported were for coffee makers.  If you have not yet checked your coffee maker for recalls, now is a good time to add it to Items I Own!
