Russell Hobbs are recalling a batch of white plastic travelling kettles due to a defect which may cause the switch in the handle to overheat and could result in a fire. 2,000 units of the product have been sold in Ireland with the model no. 14178.

The model number can be found on the underside of the kettle within a rectangular shaped label that also contains a five digit batch code.

If the first three digits of the batch code start with the number 280 up to 365 and end in 14, or the first three digits start with the number 001 up to 240 and end in 15, then you have an affected kettle.
