Dollar Tree of Chesapeake, Va., is recalling more than one million hot glue guns sold in the U.S. and Canada.

The glue gun can malfunction when plugged in, posing fire and burn hazards.

The firm has received seven reports of electrical malfunctions when using the glue guns, including four reports of fire and one report of skin irritation.

This recall involves Crafter’s Square Glue Guns that dispense hot glue when plugged into an outlet and the trigger is depressed.

The plastic glue gun is black with an orange trigger and tip.

The glue guns have a silver UL listed label located above the handle with “GLUE GUN” and “XY-15302” printed on the label.

The glue guns, manufactured in China, were sold at Dollar Tree stores nationwide from August 2020, through February 2022; at Family Dollar stores nationwide from January 2022, through February 2022; and online at www.dollartree.com from August 2021, through February 2022, for about $1.
