PhotoKikkerland Design of New York is recalling about 3,600 wireless charger bedside pockets.

The wireless charger bedside pockets can overheat, posing fire and burn hazards.

The firm has received three reports of smoke coming from the charger pockets. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves Kikkerland’s wireless charger bedside pockets used for recharging mobile phones and devices.

The recalled chargers have a wireless charging pocket in which a mobile phone or other electronic device is placed.

The configuration is of an expanding v-shaped file folder with a single pocket and a rigid flap that is pivotally attached on one side. The pocket is typically placed between the mattress and the bed frame. They are made of a dark gray felt material and were sold with a power cord.

In operation, the cord is plugged into an electronic outlet and the mobile phone is placed into the pocket for recharging.

The charger pockets, manufactured in China, were sold at Annie’s Blue Ribbon, Kowalski’s, SF MOMA, Therapy stores and other stores nationwide from March 2018, through August 2018, for about $35.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled charger pockets and contact Kikkerland for instructions on how to receive a full refund.
