March 14, 2002Rose Art Has Recalled Children's Soap
- Rose Art Industries Inc has recalled about 124,400 Soap Making Kits.
The soap may get too hot when heated in the microwave oven and leak from the
plastic container posing a burn hazard to children.
CPSC and Rose Art have received 10 reports of children being burned by the
hot soap while removing the plastic container from the microwave oven.
The soap making kit is sold in a cardboard box with model number 4054 or a
plastic case with model number 4121 on the packaging. The model number is
located on the upper right hand corner on the front of the packaging. Each
kit includes bars of soap, molds, and a plastic cup to melt soap chunks.
Toy and discount stores, including Toys R Us, Wal Mart, Kaybee Toys, Target
and Value City, sold these kits nationwide between August 1997 through
December 2001 for about $10.
Consumers should stop using these kits immediately and contact Rose Art at
(800) 272-9667 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday for
information on how to receive a full refund and an additional Rose Art
product item at no charge.
