(WHTM) – Thousands of Steamfast and Brookstone Steam Irons are being recalled by Vornado today due to fire, burn, and shock hazards, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

According to the USCPSC, around 317,000 steam irons are being recalled because the power cord can become damaged near the cord bushing, leading to potential overheating of the cord which poses a burn hazard.

The cord damage may also lead to the copper wires being exposed which poses a shock hazard.
