Sunbeam says the iron can overheat and cause a fire because of a wiring issue, posing a risk of burn injury to consumers.

So far, there are 17 reports of irons overheating and three reports of irons catching on fire.

No injuries have been reported.

Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the irons and contact Sunbeam for a free replacement.
