Keurig Recalls 7 Million Home Coffee Brewers Due to Scalding Hazard

December 23, 2014

Popular coffee brewer manufacturer Keurig has recalled over 7 million of its appliances in the United States after receiving nearly 100 complaints of injuries caused by the machines.  The defective device, Keurig’s Mini Plus brewer, can spray hot liquid during use and may cause serious burn injuries.

The recalled models were manufactured between 2009 and 2014 and may be identified by a K10 model number and an identification number beginning with “31” on the bottom of the device.  The units in question were sold at several major retailers, including Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, and Kmart.

Scald burns can cause serious personal injury and long-term damage.  According to the American Burn Association, young children and senior citizens face an elevated risk of suffering deeper burns from scalds because of the thinness of their skin.  In addition to the initial injury, scalding burns can easily become infected, creating long-lasting medical complications for burn victims.

Needless to say, a machine that unexpectedly sprays hot liquid at anyone in the vicinity is defective and dangerous.  If you or a loved one have been injured by a defective Keurig brewer or any other defective product, contact the Ohio product liability lawyers at Lowe Scott Fisher Co., LPA to discuss your case.
