MindWare recalls Animal Tracking Explorer kits

About 2,200 Animal Tracking Explorer kits are being recalled because they contain chemicals that may irritate children's skin and eyes, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Friday.

The kits were imported to North America by Minnesota-based MindWare.

The CPSC says that an ingredient in the kits marked as "plaster of Paris" is actually calcium hydroxide.

No related incidents have been reported, the CPSC said.

The kits were sold through MindWare's website and catalogue from September 2007 through December 2007 for about $25 US.

The kits were made in China.

Caregivers should take the kits away from children and contact the company for a refund or replacement.
