Just in case you didn't see watchdog on BBC or hear Gerry Ryan this morning. There seems to be a fault with the Russell Hobbs kettle model 10789. It has a glass lid. Apparantley over 900 units were sold in the Republic but Russell Hobbs felt it didn't warrant a recall.
To ascertain if your 10789 model kettle is one of those affected by the recall:
Look at the oval label on base of kettle.
On that, there’s a four-digit number with a letter suffix.
Kettles which are part of the recall have numbers 0531M to 0621M, and aren’t marked with a green dot.
If the batch code on your kettle falls within these numbers but has a green dot, it’s been checked and modified, and doesn’t need to be returned.
Return it to your retailer where you purchased it.
