Salton, Inc. announced the voluntary recall of approximately 2,700 Russell Hobbs(R) Mona Cordless Jug Kettles.

According to the company, lead exposure with the kettles may cause serious injury to infants and young children. To date, Salton has only received notice of one such consumer complaint.

The recall includes model number RHMK3022, which was manufactured by Chiaphua Industries Limited, due to the kettle's alleged ability to leach lead.

The only affected kettles are the Russell Hobbs Mona Cordless Jug Kettles, Model No. RHMK 3022, shipped in limited quantities between July 2002 through October 2004.

The affected kettles are 10 in tall, are silver in color, and were sold in the U.S. through Bloomingdales and Bed Bath & Beyond, through Salton's online store, some of Salton's outlet stores, and through various e-tailers during that time.

Consumers were advised to immediately stop using the product and contact Salton for instructions on how to return the product and receive a replacement product.
