According to news sources, about 4 million Tassimo discs have been recalled due to the possibility of getting clogged while being brewed and potentially spraying hot liquid and coffee grounds onto consumers.
The company, Kraft Foods Global, recalled the Tassimo T Discs after receiving reports involving about 21 incidents where the recalled espresso T Discs ended up spraying hot liquid on unsuspecting consumers. Four of these reported incidents involved second-degree burns, with one of the victims being a 2-year-old girl who sustained the injuries on her face.
The recalled T Discs have a retail price between $8 and $11 per package and have been sold in stores nationwide.
Consumers with the recalled product should stop using it immediately and contact the company at (866-918-8763) for more information.
