@Spacrazy  I know! I just saw them being presented about an hour ago, so crazy!!!


@cheriere @The ones on air might have been different models that were not recalled. It's so hard to tell because QVC only lists their own item numbers. @Spacrazy

Re: Heated Berkshire Blankets and throws are recalled due to fire and burn hazards

I am sticking to the old adage of water and electricity don't mix. 

 

I can't imagine putting a throw or blanket full of wires into a washing machine. Woman Frustrated

 

Thank you @Mindy D  for the fine work you have devoted to this.

@Mindy D 

 

Thanks for posting this.  

 

I have 2 of the Berkshire heated throws for QVC.  I just checked and lucked out.  

 

Mine are not part of the recall.  

 

Good to know.

I find the numbering system I found on the CPSC site vs the system I found on the company's website very confusing.

@juanitalinda Were you able to check the last five numbers on the Washing Instructions label I just posted? It's been difficult to find the list of numbers to check against. I posted above this post. I'm happy if you have a good model.

@Mindy D :   Oh, no worries here ~ I didn't buy one. I'm really on overload of Berkshire and don't want to look at any more.  Plus, we are a family of quilters and knitters.

Re: Heated Berkshire Blankets and throws are recalled due to fire and burn hazards

just a FYI.....IF you have purchased one that has been recalled, QVC is great at either calling you with the warning AND/OR sending you a letter explaining what you can do to get a refund.

 

they do also post their recalls on the bottom page of the homepage.

I returned the Lands End blanket. It was really heavy. DH hated it.

He uses a Berkshire throw but not on recall list.

We have a BeautyRest on our bed. It's new since one of the controllers on our old one keeps going off. 

The new one has really thin wires plus is lightweight but warm. I turn it on before we go to bed. I turn off my side after I get in bed. DH likes to leave his on.

I have never bought a heated blanket, they worry me.

When you lose some one you L~O~V~E, that Memory of them, becomes a TREASURE.
