WASHINGTON, D.C. (WFLA) – Burn and shock hazards have prompted Walmart to recall more than a million water kettles.
The recall involves the Rival brand electric water wettle that is sold exclusively at Walmart stores and on Walmart.com. The kettles carry model numbers WK8283CU and WK8283CUY.
The heating element can fail and rupture, posing the risk of both burns and shock.
So far, Walmart has received 80 reports of incidents, including 7 reports of burns.
Consumers should stop using the kettles and return them to any Walmart store for a full refund.
