‘Severe’ burns have been associated with this tea kettle. It’s been recalled

There’s a chance of burns whenever boiling water is involved. But a flaw in Continuum’s Lenox 2.5 Quart Whistling Stainless Steel Tea Kettle takes that standard hazard too far, which is why 56,000 of them have been recalled.

The exact problem, as stated in the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announcement: “The tea kettles can expel hot water during use, posing a burn hazard to consumers.”
The announcement also notes that Continuum knows of “14 reports of tea kettles expelling hot water through the top, including four reports of burn injuries, some of them severe.”

“Lenox” is on the sides and bottom of the tea kettles, which were sold in Burlington, HomeGoods, Marshalls, T.J. Maxx and many other stores from September 2013 through November 2017.

While the retail cost was $30 to $50, Continuum says it’ll give a full refund only with a proof of purchase. Otherwise, the company will refund only $29.99.
Consumers should call Continuum at 800-669-6385, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.
