Do you own or does your office use a Keurig single-brew coffee machine? Make sure you check the model to make sure it is not part of a nationwide recall.
According to NBC News, the coffee manufacturer is recalling nearly 6.6 million coffee brewers in the U.S. that can reportedly overheat liquids and burn users.
The news outlet reported that Keurig’s Mini Plus Brewing Systems, with model number K10, can overheat and potentially spray water on people. The company reportedly has received about 200 reports of hot liquid escaping from the brewer, including 90 reports of burn-related injuries.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall last week. Remember, you can always check with the organization and determine if you own a recalled or defective product.
The brewers were reportedly sold online and in stores in the U.S. and Canada between 2009 and 2014. To speak to Keurig about your machine, you can call 1-844-255-7886 to arrange a repair.
A Defective Product Has Injured Me. Can I File a Lawsuit?
Remember, if you are ever injured by a defective product, you can file a personal injury lawsuit. Burn injuries are serious, often requiring physical therapy and rehabilitation—money awarded from a lawsuit can help pay for costs associated with care.
Any company that puts out a product that emits hot liquids should make sure its safety is excellent. By filing a lawsuit against a manufacturer over a defective product, you can make sure that it is held liable for any lack of corrective action.
