Light Up Ear Plug Jewelry Recalled due to Burn Hazard

ear plug jewelrySalesOne is recalling 8,400 light up ear plugs because battery acid can leak from the jewelry’s battery, posing a burn hazard to consumers. The recalled jewelry was sold exclusively at Spencer Gifts stores nationwide from November 2014 through February 2015 for about $20.

This ear plug jewelry is designed to be inserted into a pierced ear lobe and used to stretch the piercing in the ear lobe. The  jewelry contains a coin-cell battery that lights up a decorative pattern. The firm has received three reports of burn injuries to consumers because of leaking battery acid. Consumers should immediately stop wearing the recalled ear plug jewelry and contact SalesOne for a full refund or replacement ear plug that does not contain a battery and does not light up.
