Mayborn is recalling 255,000 Tommee Tippee electric bottle and food warmers. The warmers can overheat and catch on fire, posing a fire hazard to consumers. The company has received six reports of the warmers overheating, melting, smoking and catching on fire; which resulted in $16,000 in property damage.
This is an electrical issue caused by our external supplier failing to follow our instructions, which could stop safety features from working properly. These features are designed to prevent overheating if there is any kind of electrical fault with the warmer. Should a separate fault occur, the warmers can overheat, posing a fire hazard to consumers.
The affected warmers were manufactured in China and imported by Mayborn USA Inc., of Norwood, Massachusetts. They were sold at mass merchandise stores nationwide and online from July 2011 through April 2016 for about $21 for the individual bottle and food warmer or about $120 when included with a starter kit or newborn set. The recalled Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature electric bottle and food warmer is white with a gray adjustable control dial located next to the on/off light. Bottle and food warmers included on this recall have “Min” or “0” stamped on the left-hand side of the control dial and have the UL logo and a six alpha-numeric batch code that begins with a number and ends with “GY” stamped on the underside.
Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using the recalled bottle and food warmers and visit www.tommeetippee.us/bottle-warmer to complete the free replacement registration form.
