Electric Scissors Recalled For Burn Threat

July 20, 2010 Updated Jul 20, 2010 at 2:34 PM EST

The Dritz Quick Cut™ Electric Scissors have been recalled because they can overheat.

They can burn the user, or even start a fire.

About 12,000 of the scissors were sold at JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores and other craft retailers.

Prym Consumer USA has received two reports of the electric scissors igniting, causing minor property damage. No injuries have been reported.

The electric scissors are white and blue, about 10" long and include an AC adaptor. "Dritz" is written on the handle on the blue grip.

The scissors were sold between September 2009 and February 2010 for about $50.

If you have the scissors, you should return them to the store where you bought them, or mail them directly to Prym Consumer USA for a refund.

If mailing to Prym, please include the product, your complete name, mailing address and phone number in the package and mail to Prym Consumer USA Recall Center, 950 Brisack Road, Spartanburg, SC 29303.
