Breaking: 600,000 Steam Spurting Mr. Coffees Recalled!
There are 61 reports of consumers getting a face full of steam and single-cup coffee sprudge, prompting the fine folks at Jarden to recall 600,000 Mr. Coffee units. That’s a lot of units! In the last year, this is the third such case of a schlocky coffee manufacturer recalling their schlocky coffee makers.
The products, which were sold for up to $80 online and at retailers including Bed Bath & Beyond, Target and Wal-Mart, have resulted in 59 American customers and two Canadian buyers reporting burns to their faces, upper torsos and hands.
Consumers should stop using the coffeemakers – which come in black with silver, red or white trim – according to the CPSC. A list of affected model numbers are available on the agency’s website.
Mr. Coffee himself was unavailable for comment.
