The Food and Drug Administration issued a recall on surgical equipment this week.
The recall was for over 21,000 electro-surgical tools due to serious risks.
The tools were from Johnson & Johnson's Mega 2,000 and Mega soft reusable electrodes, which are electric pads used to conduct an electric current through the body during a surgery.
The FDA says it received 63 injury reports, including third-degree burns, and that some problems could even cause death.
