(WAFB) - About 15,000 charging cables manufactured to be used with Relay brand wireless and screenless push-to-talk voice assistant devices can overheat and partially melt.

The manufacturer said it received two reports of this happening. Neither case resulted in injuries, the company said. The recalled cables were sold between May of 2018 and May of 2019. Some were sold individually while others were sold with Relay devices.
