The electric kettle flex--a cause for concern.

PMID:  4092156     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A study of 153 preschool children admitted to a subregional burns unit over a 4-year period revealed 23 who had sustained scalds by pulling on kettle flexes. The dangers of dangling kettle flexes have been noted in the past. However, identifying problems and undertaking education programmes to warn against them has a limited effect on accident prevention. The recent introduction of 'curly' cables makes the prospect of active prevention considerably simpler.
