More than 7 million Keurig Mini Plus Brewing Systems sold over the past five years in the U.S. and Canada are being recalled because they can spray hot water, leading to 200 incident reports and 90 reports of burns, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Tuesday.

The incidents have involved hot water spraying from the brewing machines. Keurig reported that the problem is most likely to occur when two cups of hot drink are made one after the other and recommends that consumers remain at least an arm's length away when using one until they are fixed.

Consumers with the recalled Keurig machines should contact Keurig Green Mountain to arrange for a free repair. Keurig can be reached weekdays at 844-255-7886 between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern, and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekends or at Additional information is on the Keurig recall site. The call center will be closed Dec. 25 through Jan. 1.

Sold for About $100

The machines were sold at major retailers including Kmart (SHLD), Kohl's (KSS), Target (TGT) and Walmart (WMT) and online between December 2009 and this month for about $100.

The recalled machines are the model K10 (which was previously identified as model number B31). They have identification numbers that begin with "31" followed by a string of other numbers that are printed on a white sticker on the bottom of the brewer. These single-serve brewers measure about 11 inches high and came in 13 colors with silver trim.

Each has three brewing options: 6 ounces, 8 ounces and 10 ounces. They were made between December 2009 and July 2014. The recalled serial numbers, listed here, will identify those involved in the recall.
