The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and BSH Home Appliances Corp. are voluntarily recalling the Tassimo Single-Cup Brewer due to a burn hazard. The plastic disc referred to as the “T disc”, that holds the coffee or tea can burst while brewing, spraying the consumer using the brewer and bystanders. There have been 140 reports of the brewer spraying hot liquid, coffee grounds or teas leaves on people, including 37 reports of individuals receiving second-degree burn injuries. A ten-year old girl from Minnesota was hospitalized after being burned on the face and neck by the brewer.
The recall includes Tassimo coffee makers under the brand name Bosch and the Tassimo Professional. The following models have been recalled:
- Tassimo Professional TAS6512CUL

The recalled Bosch models have a date codes starting with “FD” ranging from 8806 through 9109, while the Tassimo Professional has a date code beginning with FD ranging from 8905 through 9109. The date code and model number can be located on the bottom of the brewer. Over 835,000 recalled brewers were sold in the U.S. between June 2008 and February 2012.
Consumers should stop using the coffee maker and contact Tassimo for a free replacement T disc.
