Test Finds Keurig Machines Can Be Covered in Mold and Bacteria
According to a recent test performed by CBS stations in Pittsburgh, Dallas, and Chicago. The news outlets swabbed the various parts of 29 Keurig coffee makers and one swab from a machine in Pittsburgh contained 4.6 million colonies of bacteria and mold. E.coli showed up on a machine in Dallas. EWWW!
These findings are alarming but realize any machine that has standing water and other food items around it is going to have similar issues. Kitchen appliances in general have lots of bacteria and mold on them, and we all know the common kitchen sponge has more germs on it than your toilet seat.
So what do you do? Make sure you clean your Keurig coffee maker regularly, and that water reservoir is a great place to start. Wiping down the brew head area, and making sure the handles and other parts of the Keurig coffee maker are clean will cut down on mold and bacteria. In the end a clean coffee maker also makes better tasting coffee.
