The Vivitar product is being recalled because of the danger.
Publish date:

Sets of massage balls sold exclusively at Target are being recalled after bursting in the microwave and burning 17 people.

The Vivitar Hot/Cold Massage Balls - which come in teal, light pink or lavender colors - were sold by the Bullseye from December 2018 through February 2019, the Consumer Product Safety Commission says.

They cost about $5, and were purchased about 60,000 times.

But in recent months, the CPSC says it has received 84 reports of the ball leaking or rupturing when being heated in the microwave, or after heating.

It's led to 17 cases of people being burned.

If you have the product, stop using it immediately. You can call Target at 800-440-0680 if you bought it in store, or 800-591.-3869 if purchased online. You can return the massage balls for a full refund.

The CPSC notice has specific model numbers here.
