Trudeau Has Recalled Fondue Sets

Woodbridge, Il (SafetyAlerts) - Trudeau Corp. has recalled about 120,000 fondue sets. The plastic ring with handles that is attached to the upper rim of the fondue pot can crack during normal heating or cooling, posing burn and fire hazards to consumers.

Trudeau has received 30 reports of plastic rings breaking, including one report of a consumer who was burned on the hand and reported of fire damage to a rug.

The recalled fondue pots are blue or white metal and have a black plastic ring that is attached to the upper rim of the fondue pot. The plastic ring includes two handles that allow for safe usage of the fondue pot. The fondue pot sits on a black, four-legged stand, which houses the burner. The fondue sets were sold under the brand names "Distinction by Trudeau" and "Trudeau Fondue Set."

Retail stores nationwide, including Target, sold the fondue sets from October 2001 through January 2002 for between $20 and $40.

Consumers should stop using the fondue set immediately and contact Trudeau at (800) 465-8909 anytime to receive a replacement fondue pot.
