Dyson and Wal-Mart are both making big product recalls this month.

Dyson has recalled about 380,000 bladeless portable heaters due to a fire hazard.


The recall includes Dyson Hot heaters and Dyson Hot+Cool heaters having model number AM04 and all Dyson Hot+Cool heaters with model number AM05.


The issue: The heaters have been reported to overheat, including four reports of heaters with burned or melted internal parts.


Consumers should immediately stop using and unplug the recalled heaters. Contact Dyson for a free repair, toll-free at (866) 297-5303 or online at www.dyson.com.


Wal-mart is recalling about 175,000 My Sweet Love / My Sweet Baby Cuddle Care Baby Doll, also due to a fire hazard.


Wal-Mart My Sweet Love doll recalled


The product was sold exclusively at Wal-Mart from August 2012 through March 2014. The doll is identified by UPC 6-04576-16800-5 and a date code, which begins with WM. The date code is printed on the stuffed article label sewn into the bottom of the doll.


The issue: The circuit board in the chest of the doll can overheat, causing the surface of the doll to get hot, posing a burn hazard to the consumer.


Affected customers should remove the batteries from the doll and return to Wal-Mart for a refund, or call (800) 925-6278 for more information.
