Burn Injuries Lead to Keurig Coffee Maker Recalls

by J. Gonzalez Injury Attorneys | January 7th, 2015 | Blog, General, Personal Injury

A delicious cup of coffee can turn anyone’s morning around for the better. You’ll instantly feel more awake and ready to take on any given day’s tasks. For all the help coffee can offer, one would never imagine a cup posing a serious danger. Keurig, a popular coffee brewer manufacturer, has recalled over 7 million of its brewing machines due to reported burn risks.

Brewing Dangers

About 90 reports of burn injuries and 200 claims of hot liquid spraying out of coffee machines have led to this massive recall from Keurig. According to the company, their Mini Plus brewers, manufactured between 2009 and 2014, could potentially malfunction if a user brews more than two cups one after the other.

Keurig is now urging its customers to contact the company to receive a free repair kit aimed at ridding the brewers of any possible hazards. The company is additionally advising users to avoid brewing more than two cups of coffee in quick succession and staying at arms-length away when using the machine.

Dealing with Faulty Products

Manufacturers are obliged to follow a strict set of laws and regulations to ensure that their products will run efficiently and safely. Unfortunately, companies sometimes fail to abide by these laws at the expense of the consumer.
