The CPSC said the power cords on the Steamfast Home & Away Travel Steam Irons and Brookstone Steam Bug Travel Steam Irons can become damaged near where the cord attaches to the iron, called the bushing. The damage could cause the cord to overheat, posing a burn or fire hazard, or if the wires are exposed, could pose a shock hazard.

The following irons have been recalled:

Brand Model number Date code Sold
Steamfast SF-717 January 2008 to March 2017 Nationwide in US
SF-720 January 2008 to March 2017 Exclusively at Bed Bath and Beyond
SF-727 January 2017 Exclusively at Walmart
Brookstone 606335 All Exclusively at Brookstone

Owners of the irons are being told to stop using them immediately and to visit the Steamfast or Vornado websites to get a refund for $19.99.
