If you have a Rachael Ray teakettle, you could be at risk of getting burned. Teakettles sold under the celebrity's cookware brand are being recalled, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
The manufacturer, Meyer Corp., told the CPSC it received eight complaints from consumers of hot water spilling from the teakettle's spout, four of which resulted in burns.If you have one of the recalled teakettles, you are urged to stop using it and arrange to get a free replacement.
About 59,000 of the two-quart teakettles were sold between December 2008 and October 2010 for $18-$40. They were made in Thailand.
The recalled teakettles have a black handle and are either orange, blue, green or yellow. They have a stainless steel top.
For more information or to get your replacement teakettle, call Meyer at (877) 782-8242 weekdays 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. Eastern Time or go to the company's recall site. The site says to expect to wait at least two months for the replacement to arrive.
