Massage balls sold exclusively at Target stores have been recalled because they can leak or rupture after microwaving, posing a burn hazard.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Vivitar has received 84 reports of its hot/cold massage balls bursting during microwaving, including 17 reports of burns to various parts of the body. 

The massage balls are teal, light pink or lavender and come in a package of two balls, one smooth ball and one with raised bumps. The balls were sold from December through February for about $5.

The safety commission said people should immediately stop using the recalled massage balls and return them to any Target store for a full refund.
