On December 23, 2014, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission stated that a recall was issued on the Keurig® MINI Plus Brewing Systems because the water can cause burn injury when it overheats during brewing, then spray out and burn consumers. It is very often that a company will issue a recall when there is a product defect, to try and prevent any injuries from occurring.
According to the article, there have been approximately 6.6 million units that have been recalled. The units that have been recalled were produced between December 2009 and July 2014. As of now, Keurig has received about 200 reports of hot liquid that escapes from the machine, which includes 90 reports of burn injuries. A spokeswoman for Keurig named Suzanne DuLong stated that no lawsuits have been filed against the company due to injuries relating to the MINI Plus.
