Michaels Recalls Art Kits Over Fire Hazard
Thousands of children's art kits are being recalled from Michaels' stores nationwide over a potential fire hazard.
If you were thinking of crafting with your kids on this rainy weekend, these are not the art supplies to use.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission says Michaels Spin Art kits and Pottery Wheel kits are being recalled due to fire and burn hazards.
Seems the battery compartment in both the spin art wheel and the pottery wheel can overheat posing a fire and burn hazard to those using the kits.
The CPSC recommends taking the kits away from children immediately and returning them to your local Michaels store for a full refund.
The recalled pottery wheel kits are blue and have SKU number 078859 and one of the following UPC codes printed on the barcode on the back of the box.
0400100663462, 0042409006603, 0042409006702, 0042409006757, 0069545670017, 0886946767692
The spin art kits are also blue and have SKU number 197861 and one of the following UPC codes printed on the barcode on the box.
042409093252, 042409930601, 042409093115, 042409093061, 042409931141, 069545093113, 400100663486
No injuries were reported from the use of either product. Both were sold exclusively at Michaels from August 2011 through February 2018 for around $25.
