Got a New Keurig for Christmas? Some Things You Need to Know about the Recall on Older Models.

Chances are you have attended a gift exchange event where a Keurig coffeemaker was a gift. Keurig coffeemakers have been a hot item for various Christmas gift exchanges for several years now. The Keurig coffeemaker derives its popularity from its simple no-mess setup that delivers a single-serving cup of coffee in a matter of moments. Ideal for home and office use, it's no surprise there are millions in circulation throughout the country.

Right before Christmas, the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a recall of the Keurig Mini Plus Brew System. The recall was announced after it became known that there was a hazard caused by the product due to water overheating in the coffeemaker. The recall announcement warned of the possibility that if the product were to overheat, scalding hot water could spew from the system burning anyone who happened to be near the product. Keurig reported to the Consumer Product Safety Commission that it received reports of at least 200 incidents where hot liquid escaped the coffeemaker, causing burn-related injuries to users of their product in at least 90 of those incidents. The Keurig Mini Plus was sold at many retails nationwide to include big name retail stores such as Wal-Mart, Target, Kohl's, and K-Mart from December 2009 to July 2014.

The Consumer Products Safety Commission has a webpage available to assist Keurig owners in determining whether their Keurig coffeemaker is part of the newly announced recall. Keurig is offering a free repair kit for the effected coffeemakers. Keurig also stated it will assist owners with how to avoid burn injuries while they await arrival of the repair kit.

While caution should always be used with any coffeemaker, if you have an older model Keurig you should make sure it is not subject to this recall. For those that have recently upgraded and are looking to sell their older model, it is important to note that it's against federal law to sell a product that is subject to a safety recall.
