Amazon Shoppers! Fake Solar Eclipse Glasses Have Been Recalled (Check Your Inbox)
Did you order Solar Eclipse Glasses from Amazon?😎
Amazon has recently discovered that some of the Solar Eclipse Viewing Glasses previously sold are fake and not suitable for protecting your eyes during the eclipse and have possibly come from non-reputable manufacturers.
If you have think you may have purchased these glasses, check your inbox for an email from Amazon with the subject line “Important Product Safety Notification Regarding Your Amazon.com” from the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. If you did indeed purchase these unsafe glasses, Amazon will credit your account for the purchase price within 7-10 business days. You do not need to return the glasses but be sure you do not wear them to view the eclipse.
The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed sun is through special-purpose solar filters, such as “eclipse glasses” or hand-held solar viewers. Homemade filters or ordinary sunglasses, even very dark ones, are not safe for looking at the sun and could result in blindness. For a list of reputable vendors and brands, head on over here.
Angela purchased the Explore Scientific Glasses found on the approved list at her local Kroger for only $1.99. We’ve also spotted these glasses at Learning Express, Best Buy and ToysRUs (in stores only)! You might also want to check your public library as many locations have been giving out the glasses for free. P.S. – Good Luck taking a selfie in these glasses as you can’t see anything! 😜
