Product manufacturers owe a duty of care to consumers who will use the products that they manufacture and market. If you were injured through use of any dangerous or defective product the manufacturer may be held liable for the damages. Keurig Green Mountain Inc., the Vermont based coffee maker manufacturer, announced a recall of over 7 million machines due to their potential to overheat liquid and burn users.
On Tuesday, December 23, The Associated Press reported, “The recall is for Keurig’s Mini Plus brewers that were made between 2009 and 2014. Keurig received about 200 reports of hot liquid spraying from the brewer, including 90 reports of burn-related injuries.” Users are encouraged to call the company to receive a free repair kit and stay an arms length away from the machine until then.
