While safe and compliant, some hot water bottles were sold without the required warning information. Consumers could suffer burns if they are unaware of the risks posed by hot water and using hot water bottles.
Snazzee hot water bottles were sold at selected Pak’nSave, New World and Mitre 10 stores, as well as independent stores in May and June 2017.
Standard 2L hot water bottles were sold in green, blue, red, purple and pink from New World and Pak’nSave from March to June 2017.
