These CiaoBosi branded Bollitore Elettrico Electric Kettles were marketed, sold and delivered as consumer-grade portable steam kettles that heat water to the point of boiling for the creation of tea, coffee, soups and other hot drinks and/or beverages.

No manufacturing date codes, batch/lot designations, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

The hazards reported in the recalled CiaoBosi branded Bollitore Elettrico Electric Kettles include the report that the metal housing of the Kettle is insufficient and is only separated from the active heating element with basic insulation. In addition, the mains lead has no protective conductor as required by EU regulation. As a result, a person using this appliance could receive an electric shock from accessible (i.e., live) parts.

As a consequence, utilizing the recalled CiaoBosi branded Bollitore Elettrico Electric Kettles in a reasonable manner expected with their intended design and anticipated use could precipitate serious injury and/or life-changing health consequences.
