Your Keurig Machine May Be Covered In Bacteria And Mold

Your Keurig coffee machine may be a bacteria breeding ground, 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, sending samples to a lab to be analyzed. One swab from a machine in Pittsburgh contained 4.6 million colonies of bacteria and mold, and E.coli showed up on a machine in Dallas.
More than half of the machines came back with bacteria counts in the millions, CBS Pittsburgh reports.

These findings are pretty disturbing, no doubt. But before you vow to switch to tea, you should know that most kitchen products will likely host a heck of a lot of grossness if they aren’t properly cared for.

And pretty much anything that creates an environment for standing water will pose the risk for possible bacteria infections. Possible germ breeders include shower loofahs and water bottles with a bit of liquid left inside.
