Tassimo has a massive coffee maker recall...burn risk.....spurting liquid.

We had a similar problem with the water boilers / tea urns on board the ships.

They could handle loss of water supply, they could handle loss of power. But they couldn't handle simultaneous loss of water and power ... More of a problem for on a ship because the water is likely to be pumped in whereas ashore it'll come from a tank.

The incident that forced a change was when the top popped off one of the boilers. Coulda been nasty if there's been steam and a person near.


I am glad they are being recalled before there are more injuries. I just imagine going to make coffee for a special occasion or a surprise breakfast-in-bread and having that thoughtfulness end with a trip to the hospital. I guess this means that companies need to do more rigorous testing of their coffee makers.
