In a recent development, a widespread recall has been initiated for Berkshire Blanket Heated Throws and Blankets, encompassing various colors and patterns such as blue, cream, gray, hummus, striped blue, and snowflake.

The recall extends to products sold under both the L.L. Bean and Berkshire Blanket brands, with nearly 30,000 blankets being recalled.

The affected items were retailed at L.L. Bean stores, where they bear the L.L. Bean and Berkshire Blanket labels. The throws and blankets, which are distributed through Army and Air Force Exchange Service outlets as well as available online at berkshireblanket.com, amazon.com, target.com, macys.com, and qvc.com, are also subject to the recall.

The heated throws, measuring approximately 50 inches in width and 60 inches in length, are crafted from polyester. Twin, full, queen, and king-sized beds share the same polyester composition. These items are equipped with a white cord and a white digital controller unit for temperature control.

Consumers are advised to locate the model numbers on a white label on the back of the throws and blankets, as well as on the back side of the controller unit. The recall has been issued due to safety concerns, and customers are urged to discontinue the use of the affected products immediately.

This precautionary measure follows reports of potential risks associated with heated throws and blankets, prompting the manufacturers to take swift action to ensure consumer safety. Those who have purchased the recalled items are encouraged to return them to the point of purchase for a full refund.

The Berkshire Blanket logo and tracker numbers are printed on the wash label affixed to the throws and blankets. The tracker numbers subject to this recall fall within the following range:
