The CPSC is recalling Crafter’s Square Hot Glue Guns sold at Dollar Tree and Family Dollar. This is after a potential “malfunction when plugged in, posing fire and burn hazards”.

About 1,025,000 of these specific hot glue guns have been sold in the United States and an additional 20,000 sold in Canada. The recall is a result of seven reported malfunctions of which four were fire-related incidents and one reported skin irritations.

If you own this glue gun, immediately stop using it and return it to any Dollar Tree or Family Dollar for a refund of around $1. These hot glue guns were sold around August 2020 through February 2022 for both chain stores. You can see a photo of the product below.

    Do you know if we need to have a receipt to return to the store?

      Hi, Sheeona! Great news, yes, you can return it without a receipt! 🙌🙌Their recall page says, “You can return the product to any one of our Dollar Tree Stores for a refund or exchange. You do not need a receipt or original packaging.”🤗
