Atico International Has Recalled Hot PotsMar 6, 2003 | www.safetyalerts.com
Atico International USA Inc. has recalled about 37,000 electrical hot pots. The bottom of the hot pot can separate from the top, which could pose a serious burn hazard to consumers.
Atico International has received five reports of the hot pots separating, though no injuries have been reported.
The recalled Kitchen Gourmet(r) Hot Pots, which are used to heat beverages, are made of white plastic and have a date code of 0702 on the bottom of the pot and box. The hot pots, which are shaped like a pitcher, also have the words, "Kitchen Gourmet," "Do Not Immerse in Water," and "Made in China" printed on the bottom.
Walgreens stores nationwide sold the hot pots from September 2002 through January 2003 for about $10.
