PSC, Kmart Corp. Announce Recall of MARTHA STEWART EVERYDAY(r)
Brand Tea Kettles

WASHINGTON, D.C.- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), Kmart Corp., of Troy, Mich., is recalling about
24,000 MARTHA STEWART EVERYDAY(r) brand tea kettles. Boiling water can
be expelled from the kettle's spout, presenting a burn hazard to
consumers.

Kmart has received 14 reports of boiling water being expelled,
resulting in three minor burn injuries.

The recalled tea kettles were sold under the MARTHA STEWART
EVERYDAY brand name, and are stainless steel or white, sage, or slate
colored porcelain. The words, "MSE Thailand" are printed on the knob
attached to the lid of the kettle.

Kmart sold the tea kettles nationwide from October 2000 through
March 2001 for about $25 to $30.

Consumers should stop using these tea kettles immediately and
return them to any Kmart store for a refund. Consumers can also call
Wilton Industries Inc. toll-free at (800) 273-9398 between 8 a.m. and
