Consumer Product Recall
JAKKS Pacific has re-issued a previous recall and is now making a new public product recall of their Spa Factory(tm) Aromatherapy Kits. The reason for the new, reissued recall are the reports of additional injuries being caused by jars associated with the toy are exploding. The recall involves over 500,000 units of the Spa Factory(tm) Aromatherapy Fountain & Bath Benefits Kits.
Take the toy jars and caps away from your children immediately. It would seem that jars that have jar lids with no vent holes have exploded and create projectile hazards.
As if that’s not enough:
“Pressure from the buildup of carbon dioxide in the jars of Bath Bombs/Balls or Bath Fizzies that come with the kits can cause the unvented lids to blow off, posing explosion and projectile hazards. The flying pieces also can cause property damage. Additionally, the mixture of water with the Bath Bombs/Balls or Bath Fizzies can create citric acid. This acid can get into consumers’ eyes when the jars explode, posing a risk of eye irritation.”
There have been a total of one hundred injuries reported in association with the product.
“JAKKS Pacific(r) Spa Factory(tm) Spa Fantasy Aromatherapy Fountain & Bath Benefits Kits were sold at Sam’s Club, Walmart, Target and other stores nationwide from August 2008 through August 2010. They sold for between $13 and $50 and continue to be available in some stores.
