Wal-Mart Stores Inc., of Bentonville, Ark., has recalled about 1.2 million Rival brand electric water kettles. The heating element can fail and rupture, posing burn and shock hazards to the user.

The white plastic water kettles were sold with a warming base and a pitcher. A window on the side pitcher has markings that measure the water levels. “Rival” is printed beneath the window. Walmart has received 80 reports of incidents, including seven reports of burns.
The kettles were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide and online at Walmart.com from March 2011 through October 2015 for about $14. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled kettle and return it to any Walmart store for a full refund.
