If you bought eclipse glasses from Amazon, you may want to check your email to make sure they’re safe for viewing.
The company issued a recall for potentially counterfeit eclipse glasses over the weekend.
An Oregon TV station reported that it received an email from Amazon warning its staff that the solar filters the station bought for Monday’s eclipse were not confirmed safe for viewing.
“We recommend that you DO NOT use this product to view the sun or the eclipse,” the email by Amazon stated, according to KGW.

Also, CNN reported that Amazon had removed a few listings on its website “out of an abundance of caution.” It’s issuing refunds to some of the customers who already bought glasses that “may not comply with industry standards.”
