Jakks is recalling 516,000 Spa Factory kids over concerns over explosions and projectile hazardsWASHINGTON—Jakks Pacific, Malibu, Calif., is recalling approximately 516,000 of its Spa Factory Aromatherapy Fountain and Spa Factory Bath Benefits kits because of potential explosion and projectile hazards.

According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, pressure from the buildup of carbon dioxide in the jars of the kits’ 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 included 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.

The recall involves the following kits. Item numbers for each are located on the bottom of the product's packaging.

• Spa Factory Bath Benefits Kit (Model #37836)
• Spa Factory Deluxe Spa Fantasy Aromatherapy Fountain (Model #37908)
• Spa Factory Spa Fantasy Aromatherapy Fountain (Model #37837)
• Spa Factory Spa Fantasy Aromatherapy Fountain (Model #54892)
• Spa Factory Spa Fantasy Aromatherapy Fountain (Model #54857)

The kits were sold at Sam's Club, Wal-Mart, Target and toy stores nationwide from August 2008 through January 2009. All were made in China.

Consumers are asked to contact Jakks for free replacement jar caps with vent holes. The company can be phone at (87..., by email at caps@jakks.net or via its Spa Factory website, www.myspafactory.com.
