Mr. Coffee has recalled over 600,000 single-cup coffee brewers in the United States and Canada, according to the Denver Post. The coffee makers in question have been susceptible to steam pressure causing the brewing chamber to open, causing several dozen reports of steam burns to the hands and face as hot water and coffee grounds spray out. There are several model numbers included in the recall, all of which are similar single-cup brewers. The units began selling in 2010, at several retail outlets, as well as at the Mr. Coffee website.
Have you been seriously injured by a defective consumer product? Speak with a dedicated Littleton product liability lawyer to discuss your options.
Each year, hundreds of consumer products are recalled due to safety concerns. A recall is generally issued by the Consumer Products Safety Commission in conjunction with the manufacturer. The effect of a recall on the individual depends on the nature of the defect. In many cases, the product may be recalled because it is unsafe to use, while in other cases, a part of the product may be recalled. Often, a product that had been recalled can be taken to a service center, and repaired so that it will no longer be unsafe.
