KitchenAid Electric Kettle

The Hazard!

The upper connection of the handle may become loose or separate from the body, posing a risk of spilling some of the contents and a burn hazard.

What to do...

Stop using your kettle and contact whirlpool to arrange for a replacement. Whirlpool is also contacting customers who have registered their products.
