Keurig recalls millions of coffee makers that squirt users with boiling water


Instant coffee machine manufacturer Keurig recently issued a recall for over seven million of its machines, following numerous reports that the coffee brewers have burned users with scalding-hot water.

The recall affects Keurig’s Mini Plus Brewing System (model number K10) which, according the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, can overheat and spray water during brewing — especially if users brew more than two cups in rapid succession.

keurig mini“Keurig has received about 200 reports of hot liquid escaping from the brewer,” the CPSC’s report reads, “including 90 reports of burn-realted injuries”

The recalled brewers have an identification number starting with “31” printed on the bottom, and were sold online and in stores in the US and Canada between 2009 and 2014.

If you’re unfamiliar, Keurig machines brew single-serving cups of coffee by using special “K-Cups” filled with grounds. The machines are very popular, presumably because they allow you to brew a wide variety of different coffee flavors, and they do so quite quickly.

The downsides? They’re incredibly wasteful (since each cup uses up a disposable plastic pod), they don’t make particularly good coffee (source: Portland coffee snob), and Keurig has recently begun using DRM to limit the types of pods you can use. Geysers of boiling water are really just another bullet point for the negatives column.
