Tesco Rapid Boil kettle recalled over safety fearsWarning sparked by concerns of burning or scalding

05 July 2013


Supermarket Tesco is recalling some of its Rapid Boil kettle after fears of burning or scalding.

The retailer has found that the bottom of the kettle could become loose, leading to a risk of burning or scalding to the person using it. 

Only kettles with the model number JKRBP12 and in the batch 130309 are affected. 

Is your Tesco kettle affected? 

Customers can identify the model and batch from the codes on the bottom of the kettle and underneath the base unit. 

No other Tesco kettle batches or models are affected by this recall.

What should you do if you have a recalled product?

If a manufacturer recalls a product, it has a duty to take action to try and ensure the affected products are safe. This is often done by repairing the problem.

However, smaller items may just be recalled and the owner refunded the original purchase price.

In this case, customers should return the products to any Tesco store for a full refund. No receipt is needed.
