If you have been injured by glow stick (8″ lumistick brand glowstic) – glow it the dark stick with connectors to make bracelet or necklace you are not alone. You may have a case against RUIEGUANG YIWU GLOW & FLASHING PRODUCTS CO LTD but you should speak to a lawyer if you are wanting to file a claim. The following is an incident that caused injury to a consumer and was reported.
Description of what happened:
Lumistick 8″ Glow Bracelets purchased from amazon third party merchant ToysNGamesEtc product brand – RUIEGUANG product – Glow Stick My daughter bend the stick to make it glow, the stick broke (exploded) and splashed the chemicals inside on her face and into my daughter’s eyes. We had to rush her to UCLA medical center ER. Her eyes were burning and red and swollen by the time the nurse and doctor saw her. They had to put eyedrops with pain killer and then flush both eyes with large quantity of saline water. I have found this brand to be particularly poor quality with leakage of approximately 1 per 3 sticks. I have only used about 10 so far and the last one not only leaks but splashed into the eye. It seems to be a common problem with this product and even has on the package “The liquid contained in these tubes is not harmful, but may be irritating if splashed in the eye. In the unlikely event of a tube puncturing and liquid splashed in the eye, wash the eye out with water.” Well leaking is one thing, exploding with just a slight bent to activate the glow stick is just poor quality and should not be allowed to continue selling as toy.
