The problem is that metal around the USB cables can become electrically charged if it contacts the USB wall charger plug prong while charging, CPSC said. The agency has received at least 14 consumer reports of the cables smoking, sparking or igniting, including 2 reports of finger burns.

What’s the problem?
The recall affects Heyday 3 Foot Lightning USB Charging Cables, which were sold at Target stores and online from June 2018 thru January 2019 for about $15, CPSC said. The cables are iridescent purple, green and blue in color, and have the word “heyday” printed on the cable’s connector.
Affected USB cables were sourced from Eden Prairie, Minnesota-based Chug Inc., and manufactured in China, CPSC said.
The agency is urging all consumers who purchased the recalled USB cables to stop using them immediately, and to contact Target for information about replacement cables or a refund.
