None that I know of.

The stick didn't "fail" in any obvious way, but for some reason it was
disconnected from the USB bus. (If it initiated that disconnect by
itself, I guess you could consider that a failure.) Maybe it was
something as simple as overheating causing a loss of electrical contact
between the connector and the pins in the USB port.

And then 22 seconds later it reconnected.
