Heating pads sold at T.J. Maxx, Marshalls recalled for fire and burn hazard

By  | 

WASHINGTON (KKTV) - T.J Maxx and Marshalls have recalled a series of animal-themed heating pads sold in stores late last year.

The recall is due to a potential fire and burn risk, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says. The heating pads can overheat during use. No incidents or injuries have been reported at this time, but customers are urged to return the item just in case.

The item in question was sold nationwide under the name Aroma Home USB Heated Hottie between November 2018 and January 2019. The heating pads came in four styles: French bulldog, sequin cat head, sequin fox head and sequin blue owl. A use and care label with the name "Aroma Home" is sewn into the bottom pocket of the heating pad where the USB cord emerges, CSPC says.

Those who purchased the heating pads can return them to any T.J. Maxx or Marshalls store for a full refund.
