About 30,000 fitness trackers are being recalled due to a burn risk.

The devices made by Provata Health were given away as part of a promotion between August 2017 and July 2018.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Provata has received 13 reports of the device overheating during use or while charging. 

In three of these reports, users suffered burns to their wrists. 

The Bluetooth trackers are black, blue or mint green, according to  US Consumer Product Safety Commission.
