KitchenAid recalls 40000 electric kettles

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Whirlpool has issued a recall for more than 40,000 KitchenAid electric kettles that may pose an injury.

The handle of the 40,200 recalled models can reportedly loosen and separate from the rest of the kettle, which can result in hot water spilling out.


The affected models can pose a burn hazard and other injuries, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The recall involves the KitchenAid 1.7 Liter Electric Kettles, which were sold in stainless steel, red, black, white, liquid graphite and cocoa silver.

Whirlpool Corporation has received 79 reports in the United States of handles separating, including three reports of minor burn injuries.

The kettles were sold at Bed Bath Beyond, Dillard’s, Fry’s Electronics, Kitchen Kaboodle, Kohl’s, Navy Exchange, Target, Williams Sonoma, and other home improvement, home appliance and retail stores. They were also available online at various retailers, including Amazon.com.

The affected products were sold from September 2013 through February 2018 for about $100 to $120.

Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the recalled kettles and contact Whirlpool for a free replacement.

Model and serial numbers are located on the bottom of the kettle. KitchenAid is written on the front of the kettles. A complete list of model and serial numbers included  in this recall is posted on the firm’s website at http://repair.whirlpool.com.
