Tea kettles sold at Target recalled due to fire and burn hazard
(WXIN) – Tea kettles sold at Target are being recalled following multiple reported issues, including a fire associated with the product.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the recall affects Hearth & Hand™ with Magnolia Tea Kettles. These 1.75 liter stainless steel tea kettles were sold in Target stores nationwide between July and October 2021.
The recall was initiated because the paint on the bottom of the recalled kettles can chip, posing a fire hazard. In addition, the handle may break and the spout may leak, creating the risk of burns.
To date, Target has received 27 reports of tea kettle incidents, including the kettle leaking, wobbling or moving on the stovetop during use, the handle breaking off, and the paint at the bottom of the kettle chipping or melting. According to the CSPC, a consumer reported a fire because the paint was peeling off the bottom of the kettle. No injuries were reported.
The recalled tea kettles are white with a copper-colored stainless steel handle with a wooden handle and a white lid with a wooden knob. The inside of the kettle is made of brushed stainless steel. The item number 324-03-7894 is printed on the kettle’s hang tag.
Anyone who owns the recalled tea kettle should stop using it and return it to Target for a full refund. You can also contact Target for a pre-paid return label to send the tea kettle back in the mail.
