Exploding Kittens recalls safety goggles. They might put glass in your face

Safety goggles aren’t supposed to be a danger to the face. That’s why Exploding Kittens recalled 11,235 safety goggles sold in the United States and Canada with Throw Throw Burrito Extreme Going Pro Edition Dodgeball Card Game sets.

The exact problem, as stated in the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recall notice: “The goggles contain glass lenses, posing a laceration hazard if shattered.”

Exploding Kittens has heard of this happening twice, but without injury.
