The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a recall for fire extinguisher balls sold on Amazon, including brands LVYXON, TATTCHINE, ARMYJY, PETSTIBLE, HelloPharma, Vixuiyz, and JHEUAYK. The reason for the recall is the extreme safety hazard they pose, including the risk of burns and smoke inhalation due to their failure to put out fires effectively, which could potentially result in severe injury or death.

Fire extinguisher balls are a type of fire safety product that self-activates after being exposed to fire for three to five seconds. They disperse non-toxic extinguishing chemicals and can put out fires within a three-cubic meter radius. The recalled balls are made of red plastic and come with a diameter ranging from 4 to 7 inches, weighing between 1 and 3 pounds. These products typically have a label wrapped around them with orange and red lettering stating "Fire Extinguisher Ball and XRT Auto Fire Off or AFO Auto Fire Off."
The fire extinguisher balls were sold on Amazon.com for prices ranging from $25 to $120. The CPSC has advised people not to buy or sell these fire extinguisher balls, and to stop using them. They should be disposed of properly at a local fire department or a hazardous waste disposal facility. For more information, the CPSC can be contacted at 800-638-2772 (TTY 301-595-7054)(https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/2023/06/01/fire-extinguisher-balls-amazon-recall-notice/70277927007/)].
