Even if that tea you make is “Yum-O” you may want to return this recalled teakettle, which could burn consumers.
Food Network star Rachel Ray brand teakettles are being recalled, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Meyer Corp., the manufacturer of the celebrity cookware brand, told the CPSC that there have already been eight complaints of personal injury from hot water spilling from the teakettle’s spout. Four of the reports resulted in burns.
The recalled teakettles have a black handle and come in orange, blue, green or yellow colors. They have a stainless steel top.
“About 59,000 of the two-quart teakettles were sold between December 2008 and October 2010 for $18-$40. They were made in Thailand,” according to news reports .
As a South Carolina personal injury attorney , I recommend returning this product to the store if you own it, for a full refund, or asking for a replacement kettle. Hot water burns can result in serious injuries that can be difficult to heal. This product can be especially dangerous in homes with children.
For more information or to get your replacement teakettle, call Meyer at (877) 782-8242 or go to the company’s recall site .
