Additional information:

Among the forty three (43) recalls the European Union has announced in its third report of March 2020, the following recall notification was made:

Søstrene Grene branded Keep My Neck Warm Pillows Recall [EU]Søstrene Grene branded Keep My Neck Warm Pillows, sold with a brown linen/cotton cover measuring approximately 44 by 15 centimeters in a four-segment form factor with a barcode/EAN/UPC of 5711812403921. The product consists of a single “wrap” pillow cushion designed to be placed in a microwave oven, heated and then placed on the neck or other body part.

No type/model designations, batch/lot designations, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, production dates, expiry dates, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other codes were listed with this recall.

The type of hazards presented in the recalled Søstrene Grene branded Keep My Neck Warm Pillows include the reported findings that the heating pads inside the recalled Wrap Pillows might start to burn when heated in a microwave oven.

The danger is that the recalled Keep My Neck Warm Pillows could produce burns and/or fires if used in the usual and expected manner for this product. If this defect occurs, the product may burn (rather than warm) when heated in the microwave oven. Further, a user may suffer a serious burn on any part of the body to which the Wrap Pillow is applied. More serious burns could be caused if the user falls asleep with the hot Wrap Pillow in contact with the skin surface.

Due to these reported defects and their associated risks, these Keep My Neck Warm Pillows do not comply with Europe’s Safety Directives and requirements for safe consumer products.

Consequently, a recall of these Wrap Pillows, a stop-sale notice and a withdrawal of the product from the European marketplace has been ordered.
