More than 31,000 children’s ear muffs sold nationwide are being recalled because they pose burn and injury hazards to users, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The AAA alkaline batteries included in the Children’s HearMuffs sound compression ear muffs "can rupture, posing hearing, projectile and/or burn" injuries, according to the independent safety agency.
The recall was issued after Hearing Lab Technology LLC/Lucid Audio LLC received over a dozen reports that the batteries had ruptured. To date, there have been no injuries reported.
