Household products recalled due to defects include kettles

Consumers in West Virginia may be impacted by a recent recall of kettles. Electric water kettles from Rival are being recalled by Walmart because of possible shock and burn hazards. More than a million of these defective household products are being recalled.

Based on the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, the white kettles made of plastic were sold with pitchers and warming bases. Officials said so far, Walmart has gotten 80 reports about incidents dealing with the pitchers. These incidents include seven burns.

Consumers have been asked to quit using the Rival kettles in light of the hazards associated with them. Customers can simply return the dangerous kettles to any Walmart store. The retail giant can then provide each customer with a full refund.

Individuals in the state of West Virginia who end up suffering injuries due to using hazardous household products have the right to seek to hold the product makers accountable through the civil court system. These victims may file product liability claims, pursuing the reimbursement of monetary damages sustained as a result of using the products. No amount of money can totally take away the emotional or physical challenges that individuals may face after using defective products that cause injuries. However, monetary awards may help these individuals to cover their related medical expenses and other losses tied to the use of the dangerous products. Monetary compensation may also help to address the emotional distress as well as the pain and suffering associated with this type of case.
