The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the voluntary recall of almost 7 million Keurig MINI Plus Brewing Systems today.
The recall has been issued after about 90 reports of burn-related injuries due to water overheating during brewing, which can spray out and burn users. According to Keurig, this is more likely to occur if the brewer is used to brew two or more cups in quick succession.
The MINI Plus Brewing System units affected are machines with model number K10 (formerly identified as B31), produced prior to July 2014.
Keurig is offering a free repair kit for recalled units, which resolves the potential issue. In the meantime, the company does say you can continue to use your machine but that you should avoid brewing multiple cups and use caution during the brewing process.
For more information, contact Keurig Green Mountain at 844-255-7886, Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. (Eastern time) and Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (Eastern time), or visit the recall page on its website. You will need the serial number of your machine, located on the bottom of the unit.
