What’s the Problem?
July 18, 2017 – The incident could’ve been a lot worse had the girl’s mother, Allison Perrins, not been home when the fidget spinner overheated, according to ABC10.
“It was so hot I couldn’t hold it at all,” Allison Perrins said. “What if my house had burned down? That’s pretty major.”
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) says it is investigating at least 3 incidents where bluetooth fidget spinners overheated or caught fire. Mothers in Alabama and Michigan have reported similar incidents with chargeable fidget spinners.
Patty Davis, a spokesperson for the CPSC, said the agency is also investigating reports of fidget spinners posing choking hazards for young children. Consumers who have experienced similar issues with the gadgets are encouraged to report them.
As for chargeable fidget spinners, Davis advises consumers to remain near the devices when they are charging, to never charge them while sleeping, and to always use the charger that comes with the spinner.
