MZB is recalling a line of children's watches due to a risk of skin irritation or burns.

The recall involves 303 styles of "Light Up" watches. The watches have a flexible plastic wristband sold in multiple colors including pink, pink with white snowflakes, green, blue and navy blue. "MZB" and the style number are printed on the case-back of the watches.

In affected watches, the case-back can detach and expose the interior to water, posing a risk of skin irritation, redness, rashes or chemical burns. The firm has received 11 reports of skin irritation or chemical burns. Six of these consumers have required medical treatment.

For a complete list of the recalled styles, visit the MZB website.

MZB watches were sold at Kmart, Kohl's, Walmart, and other retailers nationwide from October 2012 to June 2015 for between $5 and $20.

Owners should immediately stop using the watches and contact the company for a refund. MZB can be reached at (888) 770-7085.
