Keurig, Recalling Brewing Systems, Burn Hazard
They're convenient, quick and most households have one.
Now the makers of the Keurig® Mini PLUS Brewing System are recalling about 7 million of the machines because consumers are reporting getting burned.
From the Consumer Product Safety Commission:
This recall involves Keurig® MINI Plus Brewing System with model number K10 (previously identified as model number B31). Recalled brewers have an identification number starting with “31” followed by a range of numbers printed on a white sticker on the bottom of the brewer. They are single-serve, hot beverage brewers and were sold in 13 different colors with silver trim.
The complete list is here.
Keurig has received about 200 reports of hot liquid escaping from the brewer, including 90 reports of burn-related injuries. Stores who sold the machines include Kmart, Kohl’s, Target, Walmart and online at www.keurig.com, www.greenmountaincoffee.com and www.keurig.ca from December 2009 through December 2014 for about $100.
