A product designed to deliver pain relief is being recalled due to its potential to deliver pain.

E. Mishan & Sons (Emson) is recalling the UComfy Neck and Shoulder Heat Wrap, an electric powered wrap that provides heat to the user's neck, shoulders, and upper back. The heat wrap can overheat, posing a burn hazard.

The wraps come in two colors: beige (item number 9700FE) and blue (9699FE). The item numbers appear on the product washing instructions label. The electric controller unit reads TYPE HP74. The connection between the power supply and the heat wrap has four prongs. UComfy is printed at the top of the white label attached to the heat wraps.

Customers could purchase these products on the Home Shopping Network, Groupon, or other online retailers from October 2015 through November 2015 for about $40.

The company has received 16 reports of the heat wraps overheating, including three reports of burns.
