Pfizer Consumer Healthcare has voluntarily recalled one lot of ThermaCare HeatWraps Back Pain Therapy at the consumer level in the US. It is the second recall for ThermaCare HeatWraps in six months.
The recall was initiated because the HeatWraps could potentially include "cells that have a higher cell temperature than specified".
Pfizer said this posed a "potential risk of skin injuries such as burns/blisters and/or skin irritation on the wrap applied area".
In November 2018, Pfizer Consumer Healthcare voluntarily recalled six lots of ThermaCare HeatWraps at the consumer level in the US (click here to read the News story).
The company said at the time that products from the six lots had "a potential to leak ingredients that are contained in the heat cell wrap". "The use of a leaking/damaged heat cell wrap could cause skin injuries such as burns/blisters and/or skin irritation on the wrap applied area," commented the company.
