Water can overheat during brewing, spray out, and burn consumers, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
Keurig has received about 200 reports of hot liquid escaping from the brewer, including 90 reports of burn-related injuries.
This recall involves Keurig MINI Plus Brewing System with model number K10 – previously identified as model number B31.
The recalled brewers are about 11 inches tall and have a “Brew” button; three-cup size brewing options – 6 oz., 8 oz., and 10 oz.; and a removable drip tray. The water tank is located on top of the unit towards the back. K10 is marked on the packaging.
Recalled units were produced between December 2009 and July 2014 and can be identified by the serial number printed on a white sticker on the bottom of the brewer.
The coffee brewers were sold at Kmart, Kohl’s, Target, Walmart, and other retailers nationwide, and online at www.keurig.com, www.greenmountaincoffee.com and www.keurig.ca from December 2009 through December 2014. The cost was about $100.
Consumers should contact Keurig for a free repair, the company and commission advise. While waiting for a free repair, consumers can contact Keurig about steps to avoid a burn injury.
