Another day, another recall. And this time, it’s exploding Bath Bombs. Yep, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and JAKKS Pacific just recalled more than half a million Spa Factory Aromatherapy Fountain & Bath Benefits Kits. Seems the carbon dioxide in the jars of bath bombs, bath balls and bath fizzies builds up and then, whammo. The jars explode, sending bits of lid and citric acid into children’s faces. CPSC has gotten 88 reports of exploding jars, including 7 instances in which children, ages 6-11, received eye injuries or facial cuts, and four cases where adults were hurt. If your family has this stuff, contact JAKKS and they’ll ship you free replacement lids with vents.
