Keurig has made a name for itself in recent years due to the unique coffee makers that have been selling rapidly. The brand offers a variety of brewing systems, from smaller mini-systems to larger-corporate coffee makers used at businesses across the United States. Unfortunately, a specific model Keurig coffee maker has been voluntarily recalled by the company this month.
The Keurig MINI Plus Brewing System, model number K10 (previously B31), has been recalled due to the potential for hot liquids to spray out of the system, posing a burn threat. There have been approximately 200 reports of hot liquid spraying form the brewer, and 90 burn injuries. This is said to occur when the unit is used to brew more than two cups back to back, which causes overheating to occur in the unit. Approximately 6.6 million units have been recalled in the U.S. alone. Affected models would have been produced before July of 2014 and were sold at popular stores such as Walmart, Kohl’s, Target, Kmart, and more.
