Ganz U.S.A., of Cheektowaga, N.Y. has recalled about 2,100 of its Dancing Teapots in the U.S. and 170 in Canada because the handles get extremely hot when the teapot is in use, creating a burn hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Health Canada reported.
No incidents or injuries have been reported in relation to this recall.
The recall involves Ganz ceramic teapots that are tilted to appear as if they are dancing, which came in blue, yellow, green, orange, pink and black. The 32-ounce teapots are about 10 inches tall and 8 inches wide, and have SKU number ER19252 and UPC 661371626062 printed on a sticker on the bottom of the teapot.
