More than 1 million hot glue guns recalled by Dollar Tree due to fire and burn risks

Glue Guns Recalled By Dollar Tree Due to Fire and Burn RiskDollar Tree is recalling about 1,025,000 Crafter’s Square glue guns in the United States and 21,900 in Canada.

The glue gun can malfunction when plugged in, posing fire and burn risks.

Dollar Tree has received seven reports of electrical malfunctions when using the glue guns, including four reports of fire and one report of skin irritation.

This recall involves Crafter’s Square glue guns. They dispense hot glue when plugged into an outlet and the trigger is pushed down.

The plastic glue gun is black with an orange trigger and tip. The glue guns have a silver UL listed label located above the handle with “GLUE GUN” and “XY-15302” printed on the label.

The glue guns were sold at Dollar Tree stores nationwide from August 2020 through February 2022, at Family Dollar stores nationwide from January 2022 through February 2022, and online at www.dollartree.com from August 2021 through February 2022. The cost was about $1.

Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using the Crafter’s Square Glue Gun and return it to any Dollar Tree or Family Dollar store for a refund, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission advise. Online purchasers will be contacted directly with further instructions.
