JAKKS Pacific Inc., of Malibu, California is recalling the following consumer product: Spa Factory™ Aromatherapy Fountain & Bath Benefits Kits. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. About 516,000 units are involved in the recall.
Pressure from the buildup of carbon dioxide in the jars of Bath Bombs/Balls or Bath Fizzies can cause the caps on the jars to blow off, posing explosion and projectile hazards. The mixtures also can contain citric acid, which can get into the eyes during an explosion, posing a risk of eye irritation. JAKKS and CPSC have received 88 reports of exploding jars, including 13 injuries. Injuries to children aged 6 to 11 years old include three cases of irritated eyes, two eye injuries from flying caps, a cheek welt and a cheek cut. Injuries to adults include four reports of bruising, one swollen joint, and one face gash.
This recall involves the purple caps on jars in the Spa Factory™ Spa Fantasy Aromatherapy Fountain and the Bath Benefits™ Kit toys. The jars are used to make Bath Bombs/Balls and Bath Fizzies. The following models, with the item numbers listed, are included in this recall: Spa Factory™ Bath Benefits™ Kit, item number 37836; Spa Factory™ Deluxe Spa Fantasy Aromatherapy Fountain, item number 37908; Spa Factory™ Spa Fantasy Aromatherapy Fountain, item number 37837; Spa Factory™ Spa Fantasy Aromatherapy Fountain, item number 54892; and Spa Factory™ Spa Fantasy Aromatherapy Fountain, item number 54857.
The products, which were manufactured in China, were sold at Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart, Target, and toy stores nationwide from August 2008 through January 2009 for about $13 for the Bath Benefits Kit and between $30 and $50 for the Aromatherapy Fountain. Consumers should immediately take the toy’s jars and caps away from children and contact JAKKS for free replacement jar caps with vent holes.
