The recalled glue guns can short circuit, causing the gun to smoke and catch fire. This poses fire, burn and shock hazards to consumers. Dollar Tree has received seven reports.
The recalled glue gun is black with a yellow trigger and is approximately 4 1/2 inches from the back of the gun to the tip. Attached is a 44-inch electrical cord. "Crafters Square" and product number 818261-72 or 818261-75 are located on the guns' packaging.
They were sold at discount dollar stores nationwide from February 2007 through August 2007 for about $1.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled glue guns and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund.
