A handful of Keurig owners ready to wake up to the company's one-serving cup of joe woke up to a scalding-hot sting instead.
Now the coffee brewer is recalling some of its Mini Plus Brewing Systems due to a possible burn hazard. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission warns, "Water can overheat during brewing, spray out and burn consumers."
By the numbers, the recall affects more than 7 million units sold in the U.S. and Canada. So far, customers have filed 200 reports claiming hot liquid escapes the machine, and 90 have reported burn-related injuries.
