PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Walmart is recalling 1.2 million electric water kettles after several injuries were reported.

The company said the heating element on the “Rival” kettles can rupture, which could lead to shocks and burns. Walmart has received 80 reports of incidents, including seven people who suffered burns.

The electric kettles were sold online and at Walmart stores nationwide from March 2011 through October 2015.

Consumers should return the kettle to Walmart for a full refund.

Munchkin is recalling 180,000 pacifiers and clips because the clip cover can detach from the pacifier, posing a choking hazard to children.

The company said it’s received 10 reports of the clips detaching but no reports of injuries.

Contact Munchkin for a refund or free replacement.
