Vallejo, CA—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the Meyer Corporation have voluntarily recalled about 59,000 Rachel Ray™ brand two-quart teakettles. The recall was announced on December 7, 2010, which cited burn hazards as the reason behind the recall.

The CPSC initiated the recall after discovering that water heated in the teakettles can spill or spray while being poured, which poses a burn hazard to consumers.

The CPSC press release reported, “The recalled product is a Rachael Ray™ brand two quart teakettle. The teakettle has a stainless steel lid with a black handle and comes in four body colors: orange, blue, green and yellow. The teakettle’s spout is opened by pushing forward a small black sliding piece on the teakettle’s handle. The teakettles were sold at a variety of department, housewares and gourmet kitchen stores and at discount and online retailers. The teakettles were sold from December 2008 through October 2010 for between $18 and $40.”

All known consumers were mailed instructions on how to obtain a replacement teakettle. Consumers who have not received instructions should contact Meyer U.S. to arrange for a replacement product.

For further information concerning the recall or how to obtain instructions for a replacement product, consumers can contact Meyer U.S. at (877) 782-8242 between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. PST, Monday through Friday or visit their website at www.meyer.com/rrteakettlerecall.
