CPSC Recalls Certain Heating Pads Made in Mainland China
The CPSC has announced a recall of certain heating pads made in mainland China.
Heating Pads. The TJX Companies Inc. has recalled about 5,600 heating pads in the United States as well as approximately 3,600 heating pads in Canada because these products can overheat during use, posing fire and burn hazards. This recall involves animal-themed sequined heating pads that are heated by USB connection to a PC, laptop, power bank, car charger or other five volt USB port. The heating pads were sold in four styles: French Bull Dog, Sequin Cat Head, Sequin Fox Head and 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. These products were sold exclusively at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls stores nationwide from November 2018 through January 2019.
