Burn risk prompts Keurig recall of 7.2M coffee makers

Just days before Christmas, Keurig Green Mountain, Inc., a leader in the coffee maker industry, recalled over 7 million MINI Plus Brewing Systems in the United States and Canada after roughly 200 reports were made that this single-serve coffee machine may cause burns, according to a USA Today article.

Customers cited instances of hot water leaking from the machine, resulting in varying burn injuries. According to the Keurig website, the recalled products were produced and sold to customers from December 2009 to July 2014.

Immediately following the recall, Keurig stock fell 2.5% in morning trading. Mark Ashtrachan, a Stifel analyst, believes this recall could hurt the image of the company, as well as affect future sales.
