About 59,000 tea kettles were imported from Thailand by Meyer Corp. of Vallejo, Calif., and sold at department stores nationwide from December 2008 through October 2010 for $18-$40.
They were sold with body colors of green, yellow, orange and blue.
The firm has received reports of the stainless steel tea kettles spilling hot water from the spout. Four of the incidents included reports of burn injuries.
Consumers were advised to stop using the kettles and contact Meyer U.S. to arrange to receive a replacement kettle.
