Whistle kettles recalled over fears of breakage

Posted on July 9, 2015 1:26 pm under Product Liability

About 113,000 Primula Borosilicate two-quart clear glass whistle kettles are being recalled by Epoca International after learning that the bottom portion of the kettle can break when heated, posing burn and laceration risks, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) on July 9.

Two models are affected by the recall: PTKG-4420, which sports a green plastic handle and whistling-stopper lid, and PTKB-4420, which has a black plastic handle and whistling-stopper lid. The defective kettles were sold at different retail stores nationwide and online between January 2012 and May 2015. To date, the company has received nine reports associated with the issue, three of which resulted in injuries and one in property damage.

Customers should either return the product to the place of purchase or contact the company for a full refund.
