According to news sources, a recall has been issued for about 2 million Tassimo coffeemakers due to a burn hazard arising from the home appliances bursting during the brewing process, posing a potential burn hazard to consumers.
The recall affects both Bosch-brand and Tassimo coffeemakers with model numbers that start with TAS100, TAS200, TAS451, TAS46, TAS651, and TAS6512CUL. The coffeemakers were recalled after about 140 incidents involving them spraying hot liquid onto consumers were reported. In those cases, about 37 incidents resulted in second degree burns, with one 10-year-old girl reportedly sustaining the burns to her face and neck. A recent recall involving about 4 million Tassimo T Disks used to brew espresso has also been issued.
Consumers with the recalled coffeemaker machines are advised to stop using them immediately and contact Tassimo at for additional information.
