Tassimo Espresso T Discs Recalled by Kraft Foods

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada are recalling 2.1 million packages in the United States, and 1.9 million packages in Canada, of Tassimo Espresso T Discs because they can become clogged and spray hot liquid and coffee grounds, posing a burn hazard.

Gevalia, Maxwell House, and Nabob brand espresso T Discs are recalled. They are plastic discs filled with coffee inserted into Tassimo coffee makers to brew single cups of espresso. The discs were sold in packages of eight or sixteen. The Bosch® and Tassimo Professional coffee makers that use these Discs are also being recalled.

There have been many reports of injuries, including 37 reports of second-degree burns. One victim was a 2-year-old-girl in Canada who suffered second-degree burns on her face. The recall is only being announced now, even though injuries have been happening for months. The CPSC doesn’t have the authority to recall defective products in many cases; that action can often only be instigated by a distributor or manufacturer.

The code is printed on the T Disc’s foil lid and on the package side. The codes included in the recall are numbers ending with 11213 through 12020.

No other T Discs are recalled. The Discs were sold in department stores, in mass merchandise stores, on various websites, and at other stores nationwide from August 2011 through February 2012. The cost was $8 and $11 per package.

You can see all of the product labels and packages, including where to look for codes, at the CPSC site. Under federal law, it’s illegal to attempt to sell or resell this or any other recalled product.

Stop using these T Discs immediately and contact the firm for a full refund. Call the firm at 1-866-918-8763 between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm EST Monday through Friday, or between 8:00 am and 1:00 pm EST Saturday.
