Householders with a particular type of Tesco kettle have been warned to immediately stop using it amid fears they could be scalded.
The supermarket chain is recalling some of its ‘Rapid Boil Cordless Jug Kettles’ due to a potential fault.
The recall only affects products that have been on sale since May 2006, and have the model number JKR16.
The product name and model number can be found on the rating label located on the base of the kettle.
Customers who have bought one of the affected kettles are requested to return it to the store where it was purchased where a full refund will be given.
