Infinity Gauntlet Oven Mitts Recalled, Burn Injuries Reported
About the Oven Mitt Recall
According to reports, the oven mitt was a part of May’s power-packed theme Loot Crate box; however, they are ultimately unusable. So far, 241 people have been burned and reports include the glove melting and sticking to consumers’ skin.
It’s likely there were far more defective mitts, as people stopped attempting to use them after reports of melting became widespread. Loot Crate did state on their website that the recall was completely voluntary and not everyone had to return their oven mitt
Loot Crate is allowing consumers to return the items for replacement items.
