U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Issues Recall of Tea Kettle

Chefmate® 2 Quart Tea Kettle

According to the recall, steam can travel up the handle or water can spill from the spout resulting in a serious burn injury to the consumer.  Additionally, the aluminum bottom can potentially melt to the stove top and pose another burn injury.  Chefmate® sold the item exclusively through Target Stores, both in store and online.  According to the recall the company received thirteen reports of incident with, luckily with no injuries.  However, if you or someone you know suffered an injury due to any defective product, they maybe entitled to damages for personal injury and should consult an injury lawyer and discuss any potential claims they may have.
