JA-RU Recalls "Blast Balls" Toys
 

Jacksonville, FL  (SafetyAlerts) - JA-RU Inc. has recalled about 43,000 "Blast Balls" toys. When struck together, the toys create a cracking sound similar to that of a cap gun. The directions instruct consumers to strike one ball against the other in the palm of hand to create the cracking sound. When consumers strike the "Blast Balls" together, sparks can ignite, posing a burn hazard.

JA-RU has received six reports of injuries, including minor burns to hands and fingers.

The recalled toys are packaged as "Super Bang...Blast Balls". The balls are sold two in a pack, in a variety of colors.

Convenience and novelty stores nationwide sold these toys from June 2001 through October 2001 for about $2.

Consumers should immediately stop using the "Blast Balls" and contact JA-RU for a refund. Consumers can contact JA-RU at (800) 231- 3470 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday.
