The following safety alert from the CPSC on August 30, 2012.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with Sunbeam Products Inc. d/b/a Jarden Consumer Solutions ("JCS"), of Boca Raton, FL announced a voluntary recall of the Mr. Coffee® Single Cup Brewing System. Consumers should stop using this product because a build-up of steam in the water reservoir can force the brewing chamber open and expel hot coffee grounds and water, posing a burn hazard. JCS has received 164 reports of the brewing chamber opening due to steam pressure, including approximately 59 reports in the U.S. and two in Canada of burn injuries to consumers' face, upper torso and hands.
The recalled 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. Recalled model numbers are:

BVMC-KG1BVMC-KG1A-001BVMC-KG1-WM-001
BVMC-KG1-001BVMC-KG1-BEABVMC-KG1R-001
BVMC-KG1-044BVMC-KG1BP-PALBVMC-KG1R-006

Mass merchandisers nationwide, including Bed Bath & Beyond, Brandsmart, JC Penney, Kmart, Lowe's, Target and Walmart, and online at www.mrcoffee.com from September 2010 through August 2012 for between $60 and $80.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled coffee brewer and contact JCS to receive instructions on how to obtain a free replacement unit. For additional information, contact JCS at (800) 993-8609 anytime, or visit the firm's website at www.mrcoffeerecall.com.
