Exclamation Mr. Coffee Single Cup Brewing System Recalls

Plucked from CNN earlier...

Washington (CNN) -- More than 600,000 coffeemakers are being voluntarily recalled in the United States and Canada due to an apparent brewing malfunction that can release a gusher of steaming water and grounds. More than 61 injuries, including facial and hand burns, have been reported, officials said.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement that a buildup of steam in certain Chinese-made Mr. Coffee Single Cup Brewing System models can force open the brewing chamber and spew the contents.

Importer Sunbeam Products Inc., doing business as Jarden Consumer Solutions based in Boca Raton, Florida, said it had received 164 reports of the malfunction and claims of 61 burn-related injuries.

The coffeemaker priced between $60 and $80 comes in black with silver, red or white trim. It is 11 inches tall and has a Brew Now/Off button and a removable drip tray.

The consumer agency said the water tank is on top of the unit toward the back. The model number is printed on the bottom of the brewer.

The coffeemaker was manufactured in China and sold from September 2010 through August 2012 nationwide at a number of stores including Bed Bath and Beyond, JC Penney, Kmart, Target and Walmart.

Consumers who have the brewer should stop using it and contact Jarden Consumer Solutions for instructions on obtaining a free replacement.

The models in the recall include:

BVMC-KG1

BVMC-KG1A-001

BVMC-KG1-WM-001

BVMC-KG1-001

BVMC-KG1-BEA

BVMC-KG1R-001

BVMC-KG1-044

BVMC-KG1BP-PAL

BVMC-KG1R-006

BVMC-KG1A

BVMC-KG1-WM

BVMC-KG1W-001

Unhappy

"The coffeemaker was manufactured in China..."

Why am I not surprised.
That is terrible: 61+ injuries, and probably more that have not yet been reported.

This is the Mr Coffee alternative to Keurigs and works with K cups

Keurig has their own small version that holds only enough water for an individual use. When things go wrong though, the only water heated to dangerous levels is that amount used for a single serving.

thanks Brad - Just last night a friend was happily telling me she bought the red model of this Mr Coffee machine for her daughter. I will pass the info along to her and 'thanks'

my original Keurig (5 yrs +) is still in service.
