It's learned 360,000 Thanos Infinity Gauntlet Oven Mitts are being recalled due to a fire hazard.

The Infinity Gauntlet Mitts were an exclusive part of the Loot Crate Power-themed geek box.

Thanos creator Jim Starin shared the news on his official Facebook page.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission lists the Infinity Gauntlet Oven Mitts mitts as a hazard: "The oven mitts lack thermal protection, posing a burn hazard to consumers." Adding: "The firm has received 241 reports of burn injuries, including reports of the glove melting and burning consumers’ skin." It's advised: "Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled oven mitts, destroy them and contact Loot Crate to receive a replacement product of equal or greater value."

The Loot Crate website is offering free replacements for the Infinity Gauntlet Oven Mitts.

Hello, Looters. Every month, we strive to bring you unique, interesting, and fun items based on your favorite pop culture franchises. However, more important than providing something cool is the personal safety of our subscribers. Recently, we received reports that some of the Infinity Gauntlet Oven Mitts found in May's POWER-themed crate could not withstand certain levels of high temperature. An unexpected and unfortunate development for one of the most powerful items in the galaxy. Based on these reports, we believe it's possible some of the oven mitts sent in your Loot Crates may pose a safety hazard and are issuing a voluntary recall on all Infinity Gauntlet Oven Mitts. We're deeply sorry for the inconvenience but we'll be offering a t-shirt and Simpsons key chain to make up for it upon your submission of certain information below. Please see below for instructions on what to do with the mitts and how to claim your replacement items. Unfortunately, we won't be able to recover the Infinity Gems either.
