Attention, coffee lovers: Keurig recall
Popular coffee machine reportedly causes burns, Keurig recalls 7 million units
Keurig Green Mountain, Inc., a popular manufacturer of single-cup coffee brewing systems, issued a recall this morning on approximately 7 million of its coffee brewing machines in the United States following about 90 reports of burn injuries and 200 reports of product defects. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the defect allows hot liquid to escape during the brewing process, and in some cases this has caused burns.
Specifically, it is the Keurig MINI Plus Brewing System that is affected. The company is offering a free repair kit to customers whose Keurig brewers have been recalled.
In the meantime, Keurig states that it is safe for consumers to continue to use the coffee maker. According to their representatives, the machines are more likely to overheat and spit hot liquid when brewing multiple cups in quick succession. Consumers are therefore advised to avoid brewing more than two cups in rapid succession and to maintain an arm’s length distance from the brewer while it is in use.
