Over 31,000 children’s battery-powered ear muffs have been recalled due to fire hazards

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, over 31,000 children’s ear muffs marketed nationally are being recalled because they offer burn and injury threats to users.

According to the independent safety body, the AAA alkaline batteries contained in the Children’s HearMuffs sound compression ear muffs “may explode, posing hearing, projectile, and/or burn” damage.

Hearing Lab Technology LLC/Lucid Audio LLC announced the recall after receiving over a dozen reports of the batteries rupturing. So yet, no injuries have been recorded.

Four different brands of sound protection active sound compression ear muffs for youngsters are being recalled. The LA-infant-AM-WH, LA-infant-ASM-WH, LA-infant-ASM-WHPlus, and LA-kids-AM-WH are all printed on their package.

According to the recall, the problematic ear muffs were marketed in a variety of colors and had a multi-mode power button for switching between modes.

Two AAA Alkaline batteries are required for each recalled item. According to authorities, the recall does not affect any other products.

Despite the fact that no injuries have been recorded, users are advised to “immediately” cease using the recalled ear muffs and contact Hearing Lab Technology/Lucid Audio for free replacement batteries.

From January 2018 through December 2021, the concerned items were sold in shops nationwide, including Walmart-owned Sam’s Club and Kroger.

During that period, the goods were also available for purchase through their internet stores.
