Millions of Keurig Machines Recalled for Risk of Burn-Related Injuries

Portner & Shure Law Firm Serving Maryland, Virginia & Washington D.C.


The popularity of Keurig machines has exploded in recent years. With the holidays just having passed, it is likely several people received a Keurig coffee machine as a present. Last week, Keurig recalled more than 7 million of its coffee brewing machines after several reports of users getting burned from hot liquids spraying out. The Keurig Mini Plus machines made between 2009 and 2014 are the only models affected. There have been 90 reports of burn-related injuries. Keurig will send a free repair kit to affected machines that will fix the problem. It is recommended that until the repair is made, stand at least “an arm’s length away from the brewers and [do] not brew more than two cups in quick succession.” Keurig Mini Plus owners should check for a model number K10 and an identification number starting with “31” on the bottom of their machines.
