Philips recalls defective Senseo coffee makers

Apparently a buildup of chalk with a power surge can cause the boiler to explode. If you own one, and are planning on continuing using it,  I would check out how to descale it, to try and make sure something like that doesn’t happen to you. Just so you know, I’m not saying that descaling it will keep this from happening, you would have to check with them to make sure.

It doesn’t seem that anyone has been hurt yet, but if you have one that was made between 2006 and 2008 I would check to see if you are on the recall list.
