Williams-Sonoma has recalled 28,000 Whirly Whip hot chocolate pots after eight consumers have reported injuries when the handles broke off during use, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The CPSC has received 28 reports of the handles breaking off the pots. When the handles break off, they can pose laceration hazards, and expose users to potential burn injuries.
