The well-known craft store, Michaels, has recalled 110,000 of their spin art kits due to a potential burn hazard.
The kit includes a battery operated spinning circle where users then squirt paint on it to make a colorful design.
The recall has been issued after the company received two reports of the kits overheating. The battery compartments can overheat causing burning injuries or a fire. No injuries have been reported at this time.
How to know if your kit has been recalled.
The recalled spin art kits were sold under Michaels brand “Creatology@” from August 2011- February 2018 for around $25.00 at Michaels stores and online. The recalled kits are blue and have a SKU number of 197861.
