Pace Products Has Recalled Children's Soap Making KitsJan 9, 2003 | Safetyalerts.com
Pace Products Inc. has recalled 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.
