As of 2015, the two Copco tea kettle recalls were due to a lid coming loose during handling and a loose kettle handle. Both of the recalls occurred due to damage to the product after parts became loose, with some causing minor and serious burn injuries.
Copco Harmony Tea Kettles sold between March 2006 and June 2009 were recalled after reports of 25 separate incidents in which the kettle's lid came loose. Some second-degree burn injuries that affected hands and fingers were also reported. Copco Bristol kettles were also recalled due to a loose tea kettle handle that posed a burn hazard to its owners.
