Target stores in Illinois are rushing to pull a certain speaker off of shelves. They are posing a huge fire hazard because they are melting. That's right, like ice cream. There's a simple way to get the speaker fixed but I'm not sure I would keep that thing in my house any longer.

The reason Target is pulling them from their shelves and the reason Yoto is recalling these speakers is because the speaker’s lithium-ion battery can overheat and catch fire, posing burn and fire hazards to consumers, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recall says that consumers should immediately stop using the speakers, take them away from their children, and contact Yoto to receive a free replacement smart charging cable. Consumers can send a photograph of the old cable cut through the middle to receive a new replacement cord.
