Williams-Sonoma Hot Chocolate Pot Recall Issued Due to Handles Breaking

Approximately 28,000 hot chocolate posts sold by Williams-Sonoma have been recalled, due to reports that the handle may break off the pot, posing a risk of burns or other injuries.

The Williams-Sonoma Hot Chocolate Pot recall was announced Wednesday by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada after at least 28 reports were received by the manufacturer where the handle broke off. This has resulted in at least 8 reports of a personal injury, including minor burns and cuts from the handle.

The pots were sold at Williams-Sonoma stores throughout the United States, as well as through the store’s website and catalogs, between October 2010 and January 2011 for between $30 and $40.
