Brewing Systems Recalled After 200 Incidents Were Reported

Post On 12-31-2014

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has been warning consumers about certain brewing systems that could expose consumers to a series of burn and personal injury hazards.

According to the reports, the product could expose consumers to personal injury hazards since the water may overheat while the device is brewing. This issue could then cause the device to spray the hot water unexpectedly. Bystanders or the very user could end up being burned as a result.

Impacted units of the Keurig MINI Plus Brewing System devices were sold between December of 2009 and December of 2014 nationwide at Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, Kmart, and other retailers. According to the federal agency, more than 6 million units of these products were distributed nationwide.

The products are easy to identify. According to the firm, the units impacted come with the model number K10 and identification numbers that start with 31. According to Keurig, the products were deemed hazardous once the company learned of about 200 incidents associated with the brewing systems. The incidents involved hot liquid escaping from the product. In 90 of these cases, users were injured as a result. To prevent personal injury incidents associated with these devices, consumers are urged to stop using the devices. They should contact Keurig so the company sends a technician to have the product fixed immediately.
