The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the Bedsure Electric Heating Blankets and Heating Pads recall on March 9, impacting approximately 350,000 products sold online on Amazon.com and BedsureHome.com from August 2022 through November 2022.
To date, officials have received at least 137 reports of the recalled heating blankets and pads overheating, including at last 17 incidents that resulted in burns, including one individual who suffered second-degree burns.
The recall includes seven models of Bedsure Electric Heating Blankets and Pads sold online from August 2022 through November 2022 at Amazon.com and BedsureHome.com, including the following model numbers:
According to the CPSC recall notice, the hazard of using the electric heating blankets and pads stems from the controller unit, which can malfunction, posing fire and thermal burn hazards. A white digital controller unit operates most of the electric heating blankets and pads, while a white non-digital controller with Bedsure’s name and symbol on it operates the electric blanket with model BS-LV0A.
