More than 700,000 tea kettles are being recalled because they pose a "burn hazard" to consumers.

The "Chefmate" two-quart tea kettles were sold in "Target" stores and on from January 2006 through this past May.

The US Consumer Products Safety Commission says steam can travel up the handle, or water can spill from the spout, posing a burn hazard to the consumer. In addition, the leaking steam can cause the kettle to fail to whistle. If water completely evaporates from the kettle, the aluminum bottom can melt onto the stove and pose a burn hazard.

If you have one of the kettles, you're asked to stop using it and take it back to "Target" stores for a full refund.
