Coffee brewers can cause severe burns

A consumer alert for you this morning, if you haven't made your coffee yet.

More than one million Tassimo single-cup brewers are being recalled after dozens of reports of  people being sprayed with hot liquid, coffee grounds or tea leaves.

There have been 140 reports of problems including 37 cases involving second-degree burns.

The problem is the plastic disc that holds the coffee or tea in place can burst while brewing.
