San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 30, 2012
The personal injury and product safety lawyers at Estey Bomberger are praising the recent recall of the 600,700 Mr. Coffee Single Cup Brewing System coffee makers due to burn risks. According to a report in Fox Business, 600,700 units of Mr. Coffee Single Cup Brewing System due to burn risks, manufacturer Sunbeam Products Inc., which does business as Jarden Consumer Solutions, has received 164 reports of the brewing chamber opening due to steam pressure, including about 59 reports in the U.S. and two in Canada of burn injuries to consumers' faces, upper torsos and hands.
A build-up of steam in the water reservoir can force the brewing chamber open and expel hot coffee grounds and water, posing the burn hazard. Fox Business reports the recalled Mr. Coffee coffeemaker comes in black with silver, red or white trim. It stands about 11 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. The model number is printed on the bottom of the brewer. Model numbers included in the recall are BVMC-KG1, BVMC-KG1-001, BVMC-KG1-044, BVMC-KG1A, BVMC-KG1A-001, BVMC-KG1-BEA, BVMC-KG1BP-PAL, BVMC-KG1-WM, BVMC-KG1-WM-001, BVMC-KG1R-001, BVMC-KG1R-006, and BVMC-KG1W-001.
According to the LA Times, the coffee makers were sold for up to $80 online and at retailers including Bed Bath & Beyond, Target and Wal-Mart. The products were sold between September 2010 and August 2012.
“These coffee makers caused a lot of serious injuries,” says Mike Bomberger, a dangerous product lawyer with Estey Bomberger, who has handled many dangerous consumer product injuries. “Companies need to be accountable for the products they make when they are causing so many injuries.”
