According to the safety notice, consumers using certain Tassimo Home Brewing System models have reported that T DISCs inserted into the coffee system rupture, causing hot liquids and coffee grounds to spray onto consumers.

T DISCs manufactures Gevalia, Maxwell House and Nabob have recalled specific T DISCs models said to have clogged and exploded in Tassimo Brewing Systems. Consumers have purchased over 2.1 million packages of faulty T DISCs to date. Tassimo Home Brewing Systems recalled include the Bosch brand name along with Tassimo Professional units. Consumers are instructed to immediately halt use of the recalled Tassimo Home Brewing Systems and contact the company for a free product replacement.
