October 7, 2016 — A man who was seriously burned when his recalled Keurig K-Cup MINI Plus coffee-maker spewed hot water has filed a federal lawsuit in Louisiana.
The lawsuit (PDF) was filed by Richard P., a man who is seeking $550,000 in compensation for “serious, permanent and disabling injuries,” medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
On December 10, 2015, he says his Keurig suddenly and unexpectedly emitted a large amount of pressurized boiling water and steam that immediately came in contact with his skin.
On December 23, 2014, Keurig recalled about 6.6 million MINI Plus Brewing Systems (model number K10) made between December 2009 and July 2014.
The coffee-makers were linked to around 200 reports of hot liquid escaping from the brewer, resulting in 90 reports of burn injuries. The problem is that water can overheat during brewing, spray out and burn anyone nearby.
Keurig said consumers can continue using the brewer. They warned against brewing more than two cups in rapid succession and maintaining an arm’s length distance from the brewer during the brewing process.
The lawsuit was filed on August 25 in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana (Alexandria Division) — Case No. 2:16-cv-012116.
