WASHINGTON, D.C. – Before you drink that cup of coffee, listen up!
Keurig is recalling nearly 7 million of its single-serve coffee brewing machines due to a burn hazard.
Keurig says its Mini Plus Brewing Systems, with model number K10 ( previously identified as model number B31), can overheat the water during brewing, and then spray the water out and burn consumers.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says Keurig has received about 200 reports of hot liquid escaping from the brewer, including 90 reports of burn-related injuries.
K10 is marked on the packaging, and the 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 were sold online and in stores in the U.S. and Canada between 2009 and 2014 at some of these retailers: Kmart, Kohl’s, Target, Walmart, www.keurig.com, www.greenmountaincoffee.com and www.keurig.ca from December 2009 through December 2014 for about $100.
Consumers are being urged to call Keurig Green Mountain Inc. of Waterbury, Vermont, at 1-844-255-7886 to arrange for free repair.
