The Margin: 43,000 Sunbeam heated blankets recalled over ‘fire and burn hazards’


People “should immediately stop using” Sunbeam Queen Size Heated Blankets, the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission warned this week.

The blanket recall involves 43,000 of these heated throws, which “can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards,” the notice says.

Customers should check the model number on their heated blanket label to see whether the product is the one involved in the recall. The blankets were sold in the following colors: beige, ivory, light green, dark blue, light blue, burgundy, dark gray, light gray and gray violet. 

An image of the label that is stitched onto the recalled blanket can be found below.

Check your queen-size Sunbeam heated blanket to see if your tag matches this one, which means it is being recalled.


The recalled heated blankets were sold at some small retail locations and on

 from September 2022 to January 2023 for roughly $120.

It’s the latest in a string of recall notices for popular products over the past few weeks. Read more on MarketWatch:
