I just found this online and we have a Tassimo, and since we have done a few giveaways for them, I wanted to be sure to share this.  I’m glad they are taking steps to keep consumers safe, but please let people know that may have one so they can stop using it until they get the replacement part!

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada, in cooperation with the firm named below, today announced a voluntary recall of the following consumer product.

  • I have one that needs replacing
  • Thanks for posting about this, even though I just now got around to reading it. I have a Tassimo and a similar incident happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I was brewing coffee when the T-Disc burst and hot water and coffee grounds spilled all over the place. I thought it was something I did wrong.
    • oh gosh, be sure to call them- AND fill them in on what happened!! i hope you are ok :o(
  • It's pretty sad that you can't even rely on appliances not to be recalled.
  • Thank you so much for posting this. I have a Tassimo and it turns out mine is part of the saftey recall which I wouldn't have known if it weren't for you. Thank you so much! Just ordered the replacement part online.
  • I'm really glad I stuck with Keurig :)
  • Thanks for sharing. I just sent me to my friends that own these. I've had this same kind of situation with my Keurig... wonder if they'll end up with the same kind of situation. Nobody was hurt when mine sprayed the hot water out into the room, but it was a BIG mess. And how terrible if I or the kids (!!) had been standing there.
  • That is scary. I hope people find out about it!
