Manx consumer watchdogs have passed on a warning about some Tesco kettles.

The Isle of Man Office of Fair Trading has highlighted a safety notice about the Tesco Rapid Boil Kettle model number JKRBP12.

Tesco has recalled this product after identifying that the bottom of the kettle may detach from the body on a small number of units, leading to a risk of burning or scalding to the user.

Only model no. JKRBP12 with batch codes starting with 13 in a format 13mmdd are affected.

The numbers are ringed in the low-resolution photograph above, which was supplied to us by the OFT.

The model number and batch code can be identified from the rating plate positioned on the bottom of the kettle and on the bottom of the base unit.

No other Tesco models are affected by this recall.

If the batch code is different to 13xxxx, the kettle is not affected and you can continue to use it.

If the batch code is 13xxxx, do not use the kettle and return it to your nearest Tesco store for a full refund. No receipt is required.

For further information call Tesco on 0800 50 55 55.
