Consumer Briefs / Recalls

Pressurized bath bombs could pop

February 01, 2009|Times wire reports

Jakks Pacific Inc. of Malibu is recalling about 516,000 Spa Factory Aromatherapy Fountain & Bath Benefits Kits because pressure 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 and cause irritation. The company and the Consumer Product Safety Commission have received 88 reports of exploding jars resulting in 13 injuries, including irritated eyes, bruising and facial cuts.

The recall involves the purple caps on jars included in the products. The jars are used for Bath Bombs/Balls and Bath Fizzies. The recalled products involve the item numbers 37836, 37908, 37837, 54892 and 54857. They were sold at Sam's Club, Wal-Mart, Target and toy stores nationwide from August 2008 through January. Information: www.myspafactory.com or www.cpsc.gov.

* About 7,000 Stabilicer Lite ice cleats, made in the U.S. by 32 Degrees North of Biddeford, Maine, are being recalled because the elastic harness system attaching the cleats to footwear can detach, causing the wearer to fall. There have been two reports of the harness breaking. The recalled products have the model No. BNX9. They were sold last year at L.L. Bean stores nationwide, online and through the L.L. Bean catalog. Information: (800) 555-9717, www.llbean.com or www.cpsc.gov.
