(WBNG Binghamton) Williams-Sonoma announces a recall for its hot chocolate pots due to burn and laceration hazards

The handle of the hot chocolate pot can break off during use, posing burn and laceration hazards.

The pot is made of white porcelain and has a red handle. The lid has a red knob and a frother attached to the underside of the lid knob.

Owners should immediately stop using the recalled hot chocolate pots and either return the product to any Williams-Sonoma store or contact Williams-Sonoma for instructions on how to return the product for a full refund.
