Continuum Sales & Marketing of Port Washington, N.Y, is recalling about 56,000 Lenox 2.5 quart tea kettles.
The tea kettles can expel hot water during use, posing a burn hazard to consumers.
The company has received 14 reports of tea kettles expelling hot water through the top, including four reports of burn injuries -- some of them severe.
This recall involves Continuum’s Lenox-branded 2.5 Quart Whistling Stainless Steel Tea Kettle with a three-layered bottom.
The tea kettles were sold in a variety of colors, including blue, red, silver and gold, and have a stainless steel flat bottom that measures approximately 7” in diameter and has a bent edge that extends approximately 1” beyond the flat portion of the bottom.
The brand name, Lenox, is written on the sides and the bottom of the kettle.
The kettles, manufactured in China, were sold at Burlington, HomeGoods, Home Sense, Marshalls, T.J. Maxx, Tuesday Morning, and Winners stores nationwide from September 2013, through November 2017, for between $30 and $50.
