Walmart has recalled 330,000 units of electric griddles due to a shock hazard.

According to the store, the heating element on Rival brand griddles can crack and water can get inside, posing a shock hazard when the griddle is plugged into an electrical outlet.

This is for griddles with model number XJ-14207. They are black griddles and measure 20 inches long by 10.5 inches wide.

According to the store, "Walmart" and the model number are printed on a label molded into the bottom of the griddle. "Rival" is printed on the outside edge of the griddle and on the griddle's temperature dial.

These griddles were sold exclusively at Walmart stores nationwide and online at Walmart.com from July 2015 through December 2015 for about $20.

They say no injuries have currently been reported.

Consumers should immediately unplug and stop using the recalled griddles and return them to any Walmart store of a full refund.
