NEW YORK (AP) — Walser Asia Pacific, a Hong Kong-based car accessories maker, is recalling a heated car seat cushion that could overheat.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration posted the recall on its website. The heated car seat cushion stops working or overheats. It could potentially cause a fire, according to the recall notice.

About 41,412 cushions are being recalled. They were sold at Aldi USA, which issued a recall on Feb. 11.

The cushions were sold under the Auto-XS brand name between Dec. 20, 2015, and Feb. 10.
