255,000 bottle warmers recalled in U.S.

Approximately 255,000 electronic food and bottle warmers sold in the U.S. are being recalled after several complaints revealed the product may catch fire if it emits too much heat, a June 21 report of cpsc.gov stated.

According to reports, Massachusetts-based company Mayborn USA Inc. is recalling their “Tommee Tippee” electronic food and bottle warmers because they present a fire hazard. The faulty warmers were the cause of six incidents of fire, melting, overheating, and smoking that resulted in $16,000 worth of property damages. The recalling company and the CPSC have not received any complaints of injuries involving the faulty warmers. Consumers were warned to immediately stop using the warmers and return them to Mayborn to receive a replacement for free.
