Ceraflame Recalls Ceramic Tea Kettles
 

New York, N.Y  (SafetyAlerts) - Ceraflame Inc. has recalled about 3,000 ceramic tea kettles. The tea kettles can break or burst during use, spilling hot water, which poses the risk of burn injuries to consumers.

Ceraflame Inc. has received six reports of tea kettles breaking, though no injuries have been reported.

The Ceraflame Ceramic Stove Top Tea Kettles are made of ceramic and are glazed black. The tea kettles have either a brown wooden handle, or a ceramic handle of a similar color to the kettle. The kettles have the words "Ceraflame" and "Made in Brazil" stamped on the bottom.

Gourmet stores and specialty catalogs sold these tea kettles nationwide from October 2000 through October 2001 for between $60 and $70.

Consumers should stop using these tea kettles immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a refund or free replacement. Consumers also can return the kettles by calling Ceraflame toll-free at (888) 679-5060 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or by e-mailing the company at info@ceraflame.com.

Tea kettles purchased at Bloomingdales stores or on QVC are not involved in this recall.
