ThermaCare HeatWraps Recalled for Burn Injury Risk

ThermaCare HeatWraps Recalled for Burn Injury Risk

May 6, 2019 — Pfizer Inc. recalled 1 lot of ThermaCare® Back Pain Therapy HeatWraps because it might get too hot and cause burns and other skin injuries.

Pfizer warned that the recalled ThermaCare® HeatWraps may have cells that reach a higher temperature than specified. The recall notice also warns about potential skin injuries:

“The use of a wrap with a cell with increased temperature poses a potential risk of skin injuries such as burns/blisters and/or skin irritation on the wrap applied area.”

The recalled HeatWraps were sold nationwide in the United States and Puerto Rico between June 2017 and March 2018. The products can be identified with the following information:
