Fourstar Group USA Inc. recently announced a recall of Handheld Massage Pets. The recall was initiated after the company has received reports from five stores of the batteries in massagers leaking. No injuries have been reported.
The massager’s batteries can leak, posing a burn hazard or skin irritation to consumers.
The handheld massagers were sold from September 2011 through December 2011. This recall involves ladybug and bee-shaped “Massage Pet” handheld massagers. The ladybugs are red and black and the bees are yellow and black. The massagers measure 3 1/2 inches tall and 5 inches wide and were sold with two Kendal brand AA batteries. “Massage Pets” and “Dating code 1210A” are printed on the massager’s hangtag along with UPC 0 49696 60453 6 for the ladybug and UPC 0 49696 60454 3 for the bee.
Approximately 25,500 handheld massagers were sold at BJ’s Wholesale Clubs from September 2011 through December 2011 for about $8.
