Keurig Recalls Over Seven Million Coffee Makers
Following reports of numerous injuries, Keurig has issued a recall for more than seven million of its single-serve Mini Plus coffee machines. The machines, manufactured between 2009 and 2014, can spew hot liquid during the brew cycle. So far, over 200 complaints about the defect have been brought to the company’s attention. Of those, 90 involved serious burn injury.
Keurig, based in Waterbury, Vermont, reports that nearly all of the recalled machines were sold in the United States. The company encourages anyone who currently has a Mini Plus or is gifted with one this Holiday Season to check the bottom of the machine for model numbers including a K10 and serial numbers starting with a 31 – and to contact the company for a free repair kit if your model is included in the recall.
Serious burn injuries are a common consequence of defective electronic products. If you or someone you love sustains injury from a faulty product, you may be entitled to seek compensation well beyond the initial offerings of insurance companies. The Vermont personal injury attorneys at Van Dorn & Curtiss would be honored to meet with you free of charge to discuss your case, your rights, and the most effective way to get the compensation you deserve.
