Around 330,000 electronic griddles are being recalled due to a shock hazard, according to to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

According to NBC Washington, the recall includes rival brand electric griddles with a model number XJ-14207. The griddles were made in China and sold exclusively in Walmart stores nationwide during the last half of 2015. They sold for about $20. 

The CPSC report said the heating element can crack and water may get inside, which poses a shock hazard when the griddle is plugged in.
