Keurig Green Mountain has recalled over seven million Mini Plus Brewing Systems, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. The decision was made after the company received over 200 reports of hot liquids spraying out of the single-serve coffee brewing machines and 90 reports of burn injuries inflicted as a result of the malfunctioning machines.
The voluntary recall includes approximately 6.6 million systems sold in the United States and 564,000 in Canada. The brewers were manufactured between December, 2009 and July, 2014.
Keurig is offering its customers a free repair kit for the system, model number K10 (formerly identified as B31). In the meantime, the company says users can continue to use the brewers but suggests they “avoid brewing more than two cups in rapid succession and maintain an arm’s length distance from the brewer during the brewing process.”
Keurig’s stock fell 2.35 percent Tuesday morning to $136.50 a share.
