If you have bought a kettle from Aldi, you need to check it now! It could be defective and needs to be returned to the supermarket.
Aldi has recalled one of its popular Special Buy kettles amid fears that a possible fault could cause scalding injuries.
The supermarket advised consumers who purchased its Stirling 1.7L Electric Kettle to stop using it and return it for a refund.
The handle on the kettle may become loose or separate from the body of the kettle, risking customers becoming scalded by the boiling water.
The kettle was sold nationally between 22 March last year to 13 June this year, and was available in various colours.
Aldi advised the faulty appliances have a PLU number, found on the underside of the base unit, corresponding with 58848, 60039, 60040, 60041, 56361, 56362, 56363, 58091, 58092 and 58093.
If you have a kettle with one of these PLU numbers, please stop using it and return it to any ALDI store for a full refund.
“Aldi takes product quality and safety very seriously and wishes to advise all customers of a recall on the following product,” the supermarket noted in a recall notice on its website.
Customers can contact the recall helpline on 1300 886 649 Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 6:00pm for more details.
