A release from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) indicates that numerous reports of burn injuries have led to the voluntary recall of Mr. Coffee Single Cup Brewers. These coffeemakers have been sold nationwide at mass retail stores, including online at Mr. Coffee’s website, between September 2010 and August 2012. The product’s model number is BVMC-KG1.
The importer, Sunbeam Products Inc. d/b/a Jarden Consumer Solutions (JCS), has received 59 reports in the U.S. of burn injuries occurring to the hands, upper bodies and faces of consumers. Two reports have come from Canada. In total, however, the company has received 164 reports concerning the defect that caused these burns. The product is manufactured in China.
The brewing chamber may be forced open when the water reservoir experiences a buildup of steam. As a result, hot water and coffee grounds may be ejected from the machine, which may splash onto anyone nearby and cause injury.
The CPSC is advising those who own the coffeemaker to stop using it immediately. For a free replacement unit, the importer, JCS, should be contacted. The CPSC release contains contact information for the importer.
