RECALL ALERT: Keurig recalls 6.6 million ‘Mini Plus’ home brewing coffee machines

Keurig is recalling 6.6 million of its popular coffee makers after receiving “90 reports of burn-related injuries.”

“Hot liquid could escape from certain MINI Plus Brewing System units during use,” the company said Tuesday. That is more likely “if the brewer is used to brew more than two cups in quick succession.”

The coffee makers are stamped with the model number K10 and were made between December 2009 and July 2014. They may have been purchased at a Kmart, Kohl’s, Target or Walmart, or directly from Keurig Green Mountain.
Keurig told customers to visit its website to see if theirs is among those recalled. If it is, the company will ship a free repair kit. The kit will likely include “a brewer handle attachment and a replacement K-Cup holder which prevent hot water from escaping,” spokeswoman Suzanne DuLong said.

Additional information is available from its call center, though it will be closed on Christmas and New Year’s Day.

“In the meantime, you can continue to use your brewer,” Keurig said. “We recommend you avoid brewing more than two cups in rapid succession and maintain an arm’s length distance from the brewer during the brewing process.”

Its brewers make single servings of coffee by pumping hot water through small plastic cups of grounds.

The company said it is currently working on providing retailers with safe models.

      Why would you say that? This is a design flaw that did not anticipate that people would brew cup after cup of coffee. It IS a single-cup brewer after all. They just did not design and test repeated brewings. oops. expensive, embarrassing, dangerous, oops.

    Therefore you have to be careful about the screen protector you choose
    to avoid disappointments. The weight and bulk will continually be an issue, but provide great protection and the rotating stand.
    Hence, a better way is by using the screen protector that would prevent you by increasing the screen brightness that
    would consume the battery.
