RECALL: Thousands of heated blankets recalled due to burn and fire hazard

More than 4,000 LUXE + WILLOW Heated Blankets sold nationwide have been recalled as the blanket can overheat if left plugged in and powered on for an extended period of time, posing fire and burn hazards.

This recall involves LUXE+WILLOW Heated Blankets brand name L & W BIO. LUXE+WILLOW and L&W BIO are printed on a label on the blanket. The polyester blanket measures 50 inches by 50 inches and is white with a Sherpa lining.

The firm has received three reports of the blankets overheating, including one report of a burn to a consumer’s wrist. One consumer reported seeing flames.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled electric blanket and contact MWA for a full refund or $50 voucher towards the purchase of another LUXE+WILLOW product. Consumers should unplug the electric blanket, cut the electrical cord and submit a photo of the blanket’s cut cord and labeling on the blanket to the firm at support@luxewillow.com as proof of destruction and to receive the refund or $50 voucher. After submitting proof of destruction to the firm, consumers should dispose of the recalled blanket. The firm is contacting all known purchasers directly.
