Irvine, CA — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and BSH Home Appliances Corporation have recalled Tassimo Single-Cup Brewers for burn hazards the defective coffee makers pose to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide recall on February 9, 2012.

The recall was issued after discovering that the plastic disc, or T Disc, that holds the coffee or tea can burst and spray hot liquid and coffee grounds or tea leaves onto consumers, posing a burn hazard. Thirty-seven reports of second-degree burns have been received, including one report that resulted in a 10-year-old girl being hospitalized after sustaining second-degree burns to her face and neck.

“This recall involves Tassimo brewers with the Bosch brand name and Tassimo Professional brewers. The brewers use plastic T Discs that are filled with coffee or tea to brew hot drinks. ‘BOSCH’ and ‘TASSIMO’ are printed on the front of the brewers. ‘TASSIMO PROFESSIONAL’ is printed on the front of the professional model. The Bosch-brand brewers were sold in black, white, anthracite, gray, silver, red, titanium and white/gray colors. The Tassimo Professional brewers were only sold in black. The following model numbers and date codes are included in this recall. The model number and date code are located on the bottom of the brewer. No other Tassimo brewer is included in this recall,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to contact BSH Home Appliances to order a free replacement T Disc holder for the brewing mechanism.
