About 5,600 Aroma Home USB Heated Hottie heating pads have been recalled by T.J. Maxx because the pads can overheat during use, posing fire and burn hazards to the users.

About 5,600 Aroma Home USB Heated Hottie heating pads have been recalled because the pads can overheat during use, posing fire and burn hazards to the users. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall March 8.

These products are animal-themed sequined heating pads that are heated by USB connection to a PC, laptop, power bank, car charger, or other 5V 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.

Consumers are being asked to immediately stop using the heating pads and return them to any T.J. Maxx or Marshalls store for a full refund. As of March 8, no incidents or injuries had been reported in the United States.

The recalled heating pads were made in China and were sold at T.J. Maxx and Marshalls stores nationwide from November 2018 through January 2019 for $13.
