(WBRE/WYOU) – Whirlpool is recalling more than 40,000 of its KitchenAid electric over potential burn hazards.

 

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the handle of the kettle can loosen and separate from the kettle, causing spills and potential burns.

 

Whirlpool has received 79 reports of faulty handles and three reports of minor burn injuries. Some buyers on Amazon report the handle appearing loose even before the kettle had been used.

 

The kettles were sold online and in retailers including Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond.

 

Whirlpool will provide owners of the recalled kettles with a free replacement. To view the full list of serial numbers, visit Whirlpool’s website. (LINK: repair.whirlpool.com)
