Atico International USA Inc., of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, U.S. is voluntarily recalling 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 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. Consumers should stop using the hot pots immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund.
