Additional Injuries Prompts Reannounce Recall of Spa Factory Aromatherapy Kits

. By
Washington, DCThe U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with JAKKS Pacific, is reannouncing the recall of 516,000 Spa Factory Aromatherapy Fountain & Bath Benefits Kits. Consumers should immediately take the toy's jars and caps away from children and dispose of any jar lids without vent holes.

This children's product was originally recalled in January 2009. Since that time, there have been additional injuries caused by the Spa Factory Spa Fantasy Aromatherapy Fountain & Bath Benefits Kits. 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.

As of January 2009, CPSC had received 88 reports of exploding jars, including 13 injuries to children. Since that time, CPSC has received 12 additional reports of exploding unvented jars of JAKKS' Bath Bombs/Balls or Bath Fizzies, including 13 additional reported injuries. The new injuries include irritated eyes, irritated skin and one eye injury from projectile jar lids.

JAKKS Pacific Spa Factory 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.
