WASHINGTON, D.C. - Consumers should stop using this product, which is being recalled voluntarily, unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

Recall Summary

Name of Product: Chefmate 2-Quart Tea Kettles

Hazard: 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.

Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled tea kettles and return them to any Target store, or contact Wilton Industries for a full refund.

Consumer Contact: Wilton Industries toll-free at (866) 255-9237 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. CT Friday or online at www.wilton.com and click on Recalls for more information
