When HGTV's golden couple Chip and Joanna Gaines launched their Hearth & Hand with Magnolia brand at Target in 2017, a frenzy was unleashed, and the line has been a stalwart in the home-goods department of the store ever since, with a cult-like following. Offering everything from bedding and furniture to candles and dishes, Chip and Joanna's brand certainly resonates. But that doesn't mean its products are flawless: Target is recalling 12,800 Hearth & Hand with Magnolia tea kettles because of fire and burn hazards.
#Recall —“Nearly 13,000 tea kettles are being recalled by Target due to a reported fire hazard risk. Hearth & Hand with Magnolia Tea Kettle has paint that apparently can chip at the bottom, posing a potential fire risk.” —@News12 #safety #magnoliateakettle https://t.co/u9HZswezyJ— Healthin30 (@Healthin30) October 7, 2022
The retailer is encouraging shoppers who have purchased one of the white stainless steel tea kettles to return them to the store for a full refund. The paint on the bottom of the recalled kettles can chip off, creating a subsequent fire hazard when in use, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Additionally, the handle can break off and the spout can leak, possibly causing burns.
