About 400,000 HoMedics handheld massagers have been recalled after more than a dozen injuries have been reported.
According to WPRI 12, the electric cord can break near the base of the massager, and the exposed wires can also pose an electric shock and burn hazard.

This recall involves three models, which are "HHP-375H," "HHP-250," and "PA-MH-THP."
