Copco Harmony Teakettles recalled over burn hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling Copco Harmony teakettles because the lid can come loose during handling, posing a burn hazard to the consumer.

The firm is aware of 25 incidents of the lid coming loose. Second-degree burns to hands and fingers have been reported.

The kettles come in stainless steel brushed and polished finishes and enamel finishes in red, white, black, turquoise, orange, yellow and blue. Copco tea kettles in other styles are not included in the recall.

About 142,000 kettles were sold at retailers across the United States from March 2006 through June 2009 for about $30 US.

Consumers should immediately stop using these teakettles. If the consumer has a stainless teakettle, contact Wilton for a free replacement lid. If the consumer has an enamel teakettle, contact Wilton for a free replacement teakettle or a refund.
