EAST PROVIDENCE R.I. (WPRI) — Thousands of children’s shaving kits are being recalled because they may contain toxic chemicals, according to the Consumer, Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The recall involves the Janod Children’s Shaving Kit, which is manufactured by Juratoys. The shaving kit includes a fabric zippered bag with brown trim and an imitation leather handle.
The CPSC reports that the brown trim on the Janod Children’s Shaving Kit bags “contains levels of a regulated phthalate that exceed the prohibition of specific phthalates.”
If a child were to put the bag in their mouth, the CPSC warns they could ingest potentially toxic banned phthalates.
The zippered bag contains several wooden toys, including a mirror, mustache-shaped scissors, a mustache-shaped comb, a cologne bottle, a shaving brush, a shaving cream bottle and a shaver.
The shaving kits were sold on Amazon.com, as well as retail stores nationwide, including Crate and Barrel, Nordstrom and Barnes and Noble.
Six batches of the shaving kits are being recalled, including the following numbers:
The batch number can be found on the package wrapping and on the bottom of the cologne bottle.
Juratoys urges parents to immediately place the shaving kit out of the reach of children and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
