WASHINGTON, DC (WUSA) -- You may want to skip that cup of joe the next time you fly.

The Federal Aviation Administration reports several cases where crew members and passengers were burned when the hot filters exploded.

FAA officials say pressure builds up in the coffee pot and the contents erupt when the filter is not placed just right in the container.

The agency wants all air carriers to add the danger in its training manuals.
