Thousands of heating pads are being recalled because they can overheat and potentially burn you.
The heating pads were sold exclusively at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the heating pads can overheat during use, which could cause fire hazards.
About 5,600 of the animal-themed sequined heating pads that are heated by USB connection to a PC, laptop, power bank, car charger or other 5V USB port were sold in the U.S.
The heating pads were sold in four styles:
- French Bull Dog
- Sequin Cat Head
- Sequin Fox Head
- Sequin Blue Owl
A use and care label bearing the name “Aroma Home” is sewn into the bottom pocket of the heating pad where the USB cord emerges.
If you bought one of these heating pads, return them to the store for a reund.
At this time, no accidents or injuries have been reported.
The heating pads were sold in stores nationwide from Nov. 2018 through Jan. 2019 for $13.
