“These Findings Are Pretty Disturbing”: Keurig Health Scares Resurface After #BoycottKeurig Goes Viral

Conservatives across the country are boycotting Keurig after the coffee machine maker revealed its ads will no longer run on Sean Hannity’s primetime program. 

Amid the the boycott, singer Kaya Jones’ manager, who goes by the user name ‘TrumpGirlStrong,’ on Twitter, posted a Huffington Post report titled “Your Keurig Machine May Be Covered In Bacteria And Mold,” from 2015.

The report says ” Keurig coffee machine may be a bacteria breeding ground, according to a recent test performed by CBS stations in Pittsburgh, Dallas, and Chicago.”

Huffington Post reports:

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.

Check out CBS’s report on the health concern.

“I decided it was a good idea to inform the public about what I discovered growing in my Keurig. The reason, because after drinking my morning cup of coffee over the past several weeks, I was not feeling well in fact I was starting to get sick to my stomach. Finally I made the connection that something might be wrong with the Keurig,” wrote Tmtm20349 on YouTube.

As The Gateway Pundit’s Kristinn Taylor previously reported, the popular Keurig single cup coffee machine maker is facing a boycott by outraged fans of conservative talk radio and TV icon Sean Hannity after the company caved to pressure from Democratic Party front group Media Matters for America after the group smeared Hannity over his comments about Alabama Republican U.S. Senate nominee Roy Moore and accusations reported by the Washington Post that Moore preyed on teenage girls when he was in his early thirties.

Earlier on Saturday, Keurig tweeted to MMFA President Angelo Carusone the company would stop advertising on Hannity’s Fox News Channel TV show after Carusone smeared Hannity as a defender of child molesters. Carusone and Media Matters have been waging a war on Hannity, trying to drive him off the air by targeting his advertisers.

“Good afternoon @Keurig. You are currently sponsoring Sean Hannity’s show. He defends child molester Roy Moore and attacks women who speak out against sexual harassment. Please reconsider.”

“Angelo, thank you for your concern and for bringing this to our attention. We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show.”

Shortly after, Keurig announced it would no longer run ads on Hannity’s program.

“Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Linds. We worked with our media partner and FOX news to stop our ad from airing during the Sean Hannity Show. Please reach out to our Customer Care team at 866-901-2739. They will be happy to assist you with your brewer,” tweeted Keurig.

Hannity fans are furiously boycotting the coffee machine company.
