Target recalls 90,000 Lightning cables over fire and shock risk

Product recall: If you purchased a Heyday Lightning charging cable within the previous year, you may want to contact Target for a refund.

The cables, of which approximately 90,000 were sold, can cause electric shock or fires due to the metal around the cord.

The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has disclosed a new product recall involving one type of Heyday-branded Lightning cables that was sold by retailer Target.

BBC understands that the late Reyes later spent a season on loan at Real Madrid in 2006-07, winning the title. Reyes married Noelia Lopez in 2017 and they had two daughters, Noelia and Trina.

Apple's own Lightning cables are more expensive than they really should be, so most iPhone and iPad users look for cheaper third-party options when they need a replacement. The company has issued a recall for 90,000 of its Heyday Lightning cables after it received 14 reports of the cables sparking, smoking, or catching fire. Two of these individuals reported suffering "finger burns" as a result of the faulty cables. The cords, manufactured in China by Minnesota-based Chug Inc., are purple, green and blue iridescent and have the word "heyday" printed on the connector and the model number 080 08 8261 printed on the side of the packaging. And the CPSC said that those who have the cable should immediately stop using it and return it to Target for a full refund.

The product was sold at Target stores nationwide and online from June 2018 through January 2019 for about $15.
