Continuum Sales & Marketing Corporation is recalling its Lenox-branded 2.5-quart tea kettles after determining the tea kettles can pose a burn hazard to consumers. According to the Consumer Product and Safety Commission’s April 8, 2020 recall announcement, the tops of the tea kettles can discharge hot water during use. Indeed, Continuum is aware of at least fourteen reports of the tea kettles expelling hot water while in use. At least four reports indicated users suffered burn injuries from the hot water released. Several of the burn injuries were deemed severe.

The expansive recall extends to 56,000 Lenox tea kettles sold between September 2013 through November 2017.  The kettles retailed for between $30 and $50 at major home goods stores such as Burlington, HomeGoods, Marshalls, and T.J. Maxx. Continuum urges consumers to stop using the affected tea kettles immediately, and to contact the firm for a refund. However, if you or a loved one has been injured from hot water discharge while using a Lenox tea kettle, keep the tea kettle somewhere safe and hold onto any packaging, instructions, receipts, etc., as they may be useful in any potential legal claim.
