BETHESDA, Md. (WUSA) -- If you bought a Fly Dragonfly remote controlled helicopter at your kid's book fair, stop taking it for a joy ride around the house. The rechargeable battery inside can overheat and cause a fire.

"In fact, there were reports of flames coming from this, " says Consumer Product Safety Commission spokeswoman Patty Davis, "so you want to stop using this immediately."

Your daughter may want to share this sparkly wrist wear with her B-F-F's but Davis says these charm bracelets also contain a heavy metal in the heart lock that is toxic for children.

"Claire's recalled 19,000 of these Best Friends charm bracelets because they have cadmium."

If it's dripping from one of two General Electric coffee makers, model numbers 169164 or 169165, unplug it and take it back to Walmart. 900-thousand of them have been recalled for overheating. One of them sparked a major kitchen fire.

"83 reports of incidents of it smoking, burning and three reports of injuries to consumers," says Davis.

"Including one to an 18-month-old girl, who reportedly suffered brain damage when a lid came down on the back of her neck," says Davis.

350-thousand of these boxes are in homes right now. And, a child could get caught inside and become at risk for strangulation.

"The lid came down on her neck," says Davis. "It trapped her throat on the rim."

There is now a fix for this box. But there are not fixes yet for the other items in this roundup. So, if you have any of these items, take action now.
