Coffee facts and coffee fun, coffee features, news and reviews.

mr coffee recallImagine.  One morning you are going about your business getting ready for work. You decide to brew a nice cup of coffee using your Mr. Coffee Single Cup Brewing System. Just as you go to pour your fresh cup of Joe, the brewing chamber erupts and sprays you in the face with hot water and coffee grounds, causing burn injuries to your face, upper torso and and hands.

If that did happen to you, you may be one of  fifty nine users in the U.S. and at least two in Canada, according to The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada respectively.

Sunbeam Products Inc. doing business as Jarden Consumer Solutions (“JCS”), of Boca Raton, Florida, in cooperation with CPSC and HC, announced a voluntary recall at the end of August 2012 for twelve models of the Mr. Coffee Single Cup Brewing System.

The effected model numbers are: 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 and BVMC-KG1W-001. The model number can be located on the bottom of the brewer.

The recalled coffeemaker comes in black with silver, red or white trim, and stands about eleven inches tall and has a Brew Now /Off button and a removable drip tray. The water tank is located on top of the unit towards the back.

If you purchased a Mr Coffee Single Cup Brewing System between September 2010 and August 2012 at Bed Bath & Beyond, Brandsmart, JC Penney, Kmart, Lowe’s, Target, Walmart or online at mrcoffee.com, you may wish to take a quick look under your machine too see if the model numbers matches one of those above.

Unless you prefer your coffee to be sprayed in your face, of course.
