Millions of Keurigs Recalled Across the Country
Keurig coffee maker systems may be the perfect gift for the holidays, but you may want to think twice before giving one. Keurig is recalling 6.6 million Keurig Mini Plus Brewing systems with the model number K10, and an identification tag starting with number 31, across the country for burn-related injuries. The coffee brewing system company has received 200 reports of the Keurig overheating, and of the hot liquid escaping from the system, resulting in at least 90 burn injuries, according to NBC News.
Each of the affected systems was sold online in the U.S. and Canada between 2009 and 2014, and have a “31” identification number printed on the bottom. If you believe that you are in ownership of one of the faulty systems, you are urged to call Keurig Green Mountain Inc. of Waterbury, Vermont, at 1-844-255-7886 to arrange for a free repair.
