Wilton Industries is recalling more than 717,000 Chefmate 2-quart tea kettles in the United Stated and Canada that were sold exclusively at Target.
Steam can travel up the handle, or water can spill from the spout, posing a burn hazard to the consumer. In addition, the leaking steam can cause the kettle to fail to whistle. If water completely evaporates from the kettle, the aluminum bottom can melt onto the stove and pose a burn hazard.
This recall involves Chefmate 2-quart tea kettles sold with a black enamel finish and a solid black resin handle. The Chefmate logo is stamped on the bottom of the aluminum tea kettle.
The recalled Chefmate tea kettles were sold at Target stores nationwide and online from January 2006 through May 2013 for about $9.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled tea kettles and return them to any Target store, or contact Wilton Industries for a full refund.
