WASHINGTON - K Mart Corporation of Troy, Michigan, is voluntarily recalling some 48,000 scissors desk sets because a razor blade cutting knife in the set may pose a serious laceration hazard to young children.

Sold for less than $1 at K Mart stores during July 1988, the set included scissors, pencil sharpener and razor blade cutting knife. The package was labeled "School Days Scissors Desk Set."

Consumers should remove the scissors set from young children, and return it to the nearest K Mart store for a refund of the purchase price.
