Jakks Pacific Recalls Spa Kit (again)

Jakks Pacific Spa Factory Aromatherapy Fountain & Bath Benefits Kits

You buy an aromatherapy kit for your child.

You may be concerned about allergic reactions, or kids getting the substances in their eyes.

One thing that probably wouldn’t enter your mind would be the possibility that the jars might unexpectedly explode.

But that was the case with the Jakks Pacific Spa Factory Aromatherapy Fountain & Bath Benefits Kits.

This product was originally recalled in January, 2009. At that time there were 88 reports of exploding jars resulting in 13 injuries to children. Since that recall, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission has received 12 additional reports of exploding jars and 13 injuries.

The problem is that carbon dioxide can build up in the jars, causing the unvented lids to blow off, becoming a projectile. In addition, when water mixes with the bath fizzies it can create citric acid, which can burn eyes when the jars explode.

I found these kits available on Amazon . I would expect that the kits that are still for sale have new lids that won’t explode, but you never know, so if you purchase them you should inspect them immediately.

If you own this product you should immediately take all jars away from children and carefully unscrew the lids to prevent the buildup of pressure. Contact JAKKS Pacific at 877-875-2557 to receive free replacement jars with vent holes.
