WASHINGTON (AP) — A Florida company is recalling about 145,000 children's soap-making kits because when heated, soap can leak from the tray and burn users.

There have been three reports of burns, including a 6-year-old girl with a burn on her hand, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced last week.

The kits, made by Pace Products Inc., of Apopka, were sold under the name "Soap Making for Kids," and had the words "SCHOLASTIC INC." and "Made in U.S.A." printed on the back of the box.

The kits were sold at schools nationwide through Scholastic Book Clubs and book fairs from March 2000 through November 2002, and at bookstores from March 1998 through November 2002 for about $8.

CPSC advised the kits be taken away from children immediately. Consumers should contact the company at 1-800-541-7670 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. EST for information on returning the kits for a refund.
