Keurig Recalls Nearly 7 Million Coffee Makers Due to Burn Hazard
In light of multiple reports of burn-related injuries, Keurig has recalled nearly 7 million of its wildly popular single-cup brewing systems.
The company is recalling 6.6 million of its MINI Plus Brewing Systems with the model number K10 (previously identified as model B31). Keurig says it has received about 200 reports of hot liquid escaping from the brewer, resulting in burn-related injuries to users.
The identification number can be located on a white sticker on the bottom of the machine.
Consumers should contact Keurig directly for a free repair and for steps to avoid a burn injury while using the machine.
The company says the brewers can still be used, but recommends avoiding brewing more than two cups in rapid succession. The also urge consumers to stay at least an arm's length distance during the brewing process.
