Two-quart Chefmate tea kettles pose a burn hazard and are being recalled. The $9 kettles, made by Wilton Industries, were sold exclusively at Target stores in the U.S. and Canada and on Target.com between January 2006 and May 2013.

The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission advised that steam can travel up the stove top kettle’s handle and hot water may spill from the spout. Whistles in the 700,000 kettles also may not sound due to steam leaks. As a result if the water evaporates the bottom of the aluminum kettle could melt. Anyone who owns of these kettles should stop using it and return it to Target for a full refund. Learn more from the CSPC or by calling (866) 255-9237 toll-free between 8 and 4:30 p.m. CST Monday through Thursday and 8 to 1 p.m. Friday.
