If you have a Keurig MINI Plus Brewing System, or if you have one wrapped up to give as a Christmas gift to someone, you’d better check the serial number on your single-serve coffee maker. The Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that Keurig has issued a recall on 7.2 million MINI Plus systems due to a burn hazard.
The company has received “about 200 reports of hot liquid escaping from the brewer, including 90 reports of burn-related injuries.”
The MINI PLUS Brewing Systems were sold in the United States and Canada between 2009 and 2014 at Kmart, Kohl’s, Target, Walmart and other retailers nationwide, plus several online retailers. They retailed for about $100.
A list of serial numbers for the recalled Keurig machines can be found on the CPCS recall page. The numbers, all beginning with 31, can be found printed on a white sticker on the bottom of the brewer.
Consumers can call Keurig Green Mountain toll-free at (844) 255-7886 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET, and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. ET on Saturday or Sunday, or contact Keurig online and click on “Product Recall” for more information.
