A Los Angeles-based firm on July 28 has issued a recall to estimated 360,000 units of “Marvel” inspired oven mitts after receiving hundreds of complaints that it may cause injuries to intended users, an article of cpsc.gov reported.
According to reports, the “Marvel Thanos Infinity Gauntlet” oven mitts made available by Loot Crate, Inc., may not protect intended users from burn injuries as it does not have sufficient “thermal protection.” Loot Crate and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (USCPSC) were both notified of 241 consumers who have sustained burn injuries as a result of using the oven mitts. The China-made oven mitts that were also made available in Canada and in Mexico were supplied by Cherry Hill-based company ICUP, Inc. Consumers who might have the poorly-made oven mitts were instructed to immediately discard it and notify the recalling company to either get their money back or have a product exchange.
