Personal injury attorneys of Messa & Associates, P.C. are alerting their public of the recent recalls of separate coffee brewing accessories. Tassimo has recalled more than 1.7 million single cup coffee brewers and 4 million espresso coffee pads after approximately 160 consumers reported being sprayed with hot liquid and ended up with severe burn injuries.
Victims of the recalled Tassimo brewers and espresso pads include a 10-year-old girl who was hospitalized with second-degree burns on her face and neck and a 2-year-old girl who suffered second-degree facial burns.
BSH Home Appliance Corp. manufactured the recalled Single-Cup Brewers. They were sold in stores and online from June 2008 through February 2012 for between 100 and 250 dollars. The Tassimo espresso pads were manufactured by Kraft Foods Global Inc. and pose a burn hazard because they can get clogged and spray hot liquid and coffee grounds. They involve brands including Gevalia, Maxwell House, and Nabob, and were sold in stores and online from August 2011 through February 2012 for $8-$11 per package.
