Faulty Sealy Electric Blankets with dual controls

Purchased a Sealy Electric Blanket with dual controls at J.C. Penney Store in Billings, Montana on July 25,2010; lot # on control 471109. Recently, on August 22,2010, my husband and I were awakened at 0300 hours by popping sounds and odor of electric smoke. One of the controls from the electric blanket was smoking; although the blanket was plugged into an electric socket, both dual controls were not in use. This is a serious life/health safety issue.

Recall these blankets.

It is an electrical device - they are all dangerous when shorts
occur.

UL checks all electric blankets, and they are safe if maintained and
inspected regularly (once every 3 years). A lot of people use them.

Do you have evidence this is happening to a lot of people? If not, a
recall would not be appropraite.

Your blanket is almost NEW. Did it come with a warranty? I would be
more concerned about getting it fixed. If you don't trust having it
repaired, throw it out and get another.

Electric blankets are MAJOR fire hazards, There are links all over the
web to back up my opinion.

I would not use one, and would dispose of the one you have, and
consider yourself lucky.


Good Day
