Target recalls USB charging cables

By  | 

A recall is underway for thousands of USB charging cables...
Target is recalling 90-thousand Heyday 3-foot lightning USB charging cables due to shock and fire hazards.
The issue involves the metal around the cord which can become electrically charged if it contacts the USB wall charger plug prongs while charging.
The cables were sold nationwide at Target stores and on-line from June 2018 through January 2019 for about $15.
They are used to charge cell phones and other electronics that use lightning connector charging cables.
Target has received 14 reports of the cables smoking, sparking or igniting, including two reports of finger burns.
Consumers should immediately stop using the product and return it to an Target sore for a full refund.
