Keurig Coffee Brewing Machine Recall May Mess With Your Gift List

keurig brewing system mini If someone you love loves coffee, chances are you got them a fancy Keurig quickie brewing system as a gift this year. Or maybe you're that  self-described coffee fiend, so you own one yourself. If either is the case, you best check your machine, because the company is recalling 7 million single-serve coffee brewing machines.


The machine in question is the Mini Plus Brewing System, with model number K10, which the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports may overheat and spray water during brewing. Keurig says they've gotten about 200 reports of hot liquid escaping from the brewer, including 90 reports of burn-related injuries.

The US CPSC released details on the recall today. If you want to check your machine, it'll have an identification number starting with "31" on the bottom. The machines were sold online and in stores all across the U.S. and Canada over the last five years -- between 2009 and 2014. Eek!

That said, it is quite possible you're using one in your own home or are giving/receiving one this holiday season. Scary. But better we know now, right?

But if you were just about to wrap one up and give it to someone you love, a return or exchange may be in order. So, here's a list of several stores open for extended hours today through Christmas!

Have you ever experienced any issues like this with a Keurig?
