The following recall has been announced:

____

TEA KETTLES

DETAILS: Chefmate 2-Quart Tea Kettles imported by Wilton Industries Inc., of Woodbridge, Ill.; sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide and online at Target.com from January 2006 through May 2013. The tea kettles were manufactured by PT Maspion and Shanghai Xiang Mao Stainless Steel in Indonesia and China.

WHY: Steam can travel up the handle, or water can spill from the spout, posing a burn hazard to the consumer. If water completely evaporates from the kettle, the aluminum bottom can melt onto the stove and pose a burn hazard to consumers. Additionally, leaking steam can cause the kettle to fail to whistle.

INCIDENTS: The firm has received 13 reports of incidents, including five reports of steam traveling up the handle, three reports of hot water spilling from the spout and a report of a hot handle. Four consumers also reported the tea kettle base melting onto the stove burner. No injuries reported.

HOW MANY: About 716,000 in the United States and 1,400 in Canada.
