Keurig recalls 6.6 million home coffee brewing machines


Keurig has issued a recall of some 6.6 million of its popular coffee makers after "90 reports of burn-related injuries."

"Hot liquid could escape from certain MINI Plus Brewing System units during use," the company said today, and that risk is greater "if the brewer is used to brew more than two cups in quick succession."

From CNN Money:

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.
