JCS recalls about 520,000 Mr. Coffee Single Cup Brewers.
A build-up of steam in the water reservoir can force the brewing chamber open and expel hot coffee grounds and water, posing a burn hazard.
The recall includes the KG1 MODELS.
THE coffeemaker comes in black with silver, red or white trim. It stands about 11 inches tall and has a Brew Now /Off button and a removable drip tray.
They were sold by mass merchandisers nationwide, from September 2010 through August 2012 for between $60 and $80.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled coffee brewer and contact JCS to receive instructions on how to obtain a free replacement unit.
