Additional information:Chefmate Tea Kettles
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall concerns some Chefmate two-quart Tea Kettles sold with a black enamel finish and a solid black resin handle. The Chefmate logo is stamped on the bottom of the aluminum Tea Kettle.

According to the CPSC, during operation, steam can travel up the recalled Tea Kettle’s handle, or water can spill from the spout, posing a burn hazard to the consumer. In addition, the leaking steam can cause the Tea Kettle to fail to whistle. If water completely evaporates from the Tea Kettle, the aluminum bottom can melt onto the stove and pose a burn hazard.

The firm has received 13 reports of incidents, including five reports of steam traveling up the handle, three reports of hot water spilling from the spout and a report of a hot handle. In addition, four consumers reported the tea kettle base melting onto the stove burner.

Please note: this is a joint recall from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) and Health Canada (“HCSC”).

  • Esbelder fem (30 capsules) is packaged in a white plastic bottle with a screw cap containing 30 capsules per bottle. All lots of this product are being recalled. The product was distributed nationwide to retail customers and via the Web. The UPC code for this product is 7502011000251.

According to the FDA, the recalled Nutritional Supplements have been found to contain undeclared Sibutramine, N-Desmethylsibutramine and N-di-Desmethylsibutramine. The presence of these undeclared ingredients makes these products unapproved drugs. These Supplements may pose a threat to consumers because Sibutramine is known to substantially increase blood pressure and/or pulse rate in some patients and may present a significant risk for patients with a history of Coronary Artery Disease, Congestive Heart Failure, Arrhythmias or Stroke.
