Mighty bliss electric heating pad recall

On October 25, 2022, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning about using Mighty Bliss electric heating pads. The FDA notes 286 customer complaints about the Mighty Bliss electric heating pads, including overheating, sparking, burning and electrical problems. Complaints include electric shocks, skin burns, rashes and irritation.

On October 24, 2022, Whele LLC (doing business as Perch) announced the recall of 544,212 Mighty Bliss Electric Heating Pad units, sold online through Amazon.com and Walmart.com between July 2021 and July 2022. The Model Numbers and Descriptions are as follows:

  • MB-001 (NA-H1121B): Large (12” x 24”) Blue Electric Heating Pad
  • MB-002 (NA-H21C): Extra-Large (20” x 24”) Blue Electric Heating Pad
  • PE-MtyBls-HeatPad-12×24-Gry-V2(NA-H1121B): Large (12” x 24”) Grey Electric Heating Pad

The pad should no longer be used, but need not be returned. Pad owners can receive a refund by cutting the cord off the pad, photographing it and uploading the image to the company’s website.

Prior to the recall, the Mighty Bliss Large Electric Heating Pad, priced at $30, was highly rated by Amazon customers. Produced in L or XL sizes and made of micro plush fibers, it had over 83,000 5-star reviews.

Electric blankets and heating pads are comforting. Heat therapy dilates blood vessels, helping to relieve back pain, menstrual cramps, arthritis and other injuries.

The problem with heating pads and electric blankets: they are also a potential fire hazard if used incorrectly. Multiple heating pads have been recalled over risk:

  • In May 2022, MWA recalled its LUXE+WILLOW Heated Blankets, sold between January and March 2022 at T.J. Maxx and Urban Outfitters. The recall noted that the blanket could overheat if the plug was in and the power on for an extended period of time.
  • In November 2020, InvoSpa recalled 7,500 Heated Blankets. The blankets, made of “silky flannel and sherpa shu velveteen,” were recalled due to fire and burn hazards.
  • In January 2019, TJX Companies recalled over 8,600 Aroma Home USB Heated Hottie heating pads from its T.J. Maxx and Marshalls stores, citing concerns about overheating, fire and burn hazards.
  • In February 2018, Rural King recalled specific electric blankets and throws, warning that the electric cord could overheat and catch fire.
  • In February 2013, Kaz USA settled a class action lawsuit, (Beck-Ellman v. Kaz USA Inc.), which claimed that Kaz packaging did not warn that the heating pads could cause burns in normal use.

Whele LLC, based in Boston, does business as Perch. The company has raised over $900 million to acquire and operate Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA) businesses.

Parker Waichman handled a slip and fall case for my husband - which was handled with the utmost professionalism. Speaking with the paralegal assigned to the case, Lynda Luckman, was an absolute pleasure. She was helpful from the inception of his case, up until receiving closing papers. She always knew exactly what the status of the case was and was always there to answer any and all questions we had. Her patience and kindness was exemplary. Brett Zekowski, the attorney on the case, was very attentive to our requests and delivered a result that we were very pleased with. We will certainly recommend Parker Waichman to anyone in need of legal assistance!
