CPSC, Pace Products Inc. Announce Recall of Children's Soap Making Kits
WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety
Commission (CPSC), Pace Products Inc., of Apopka, Fla., is voluntarily
recalling about 145,000 children's soap making kits. The soap may get
too hot when heated in the microwave oven and leak from the tray mold
posing a burn hazard to children.
CPSC has received three reports of burn injuries from the heated
soap, including a 6-year-old girl who received burns to her hand.
The soap kits were sold under the name 'Soap Making for Kids." The
kits include a plastic mold tray, three bars of glycerine, string and an
instruction book. "SCHOLASTIC INC." and "Made in U.S.A." are printed on
the back of the soap kit box.
Scholastic Book Clubs and Book Fairs sold the recalled soap kits
at schools nationwide from March 2000 through November 2002 and
bookstores sold the recalled soap kits from March 1998 through November
2002 for about $8.
Consumers should take these soap kits away from children
immediately and contact Pace Products at (800) 541-7670 between 8 a.m.
and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday to receive instructions on returning
the soap kits for a refund. Consumers also can visit the firm's web site
