More than 400,000 handheld massagers have been recalled after more than a dozen people have been injured.

According to Consumer Product Safety Commission, HoMedics recalled the massagers because the electric cord can break causing shocks or burns.

More than 140 incidents have been reported of exposed wires, sparks, smoking and some shooting flames coming from the massagers. 15 people have suffered burns.

The recall involves three models: HHP-375H, HHP-250, and PA-MH-THP.
