Jersey Shore Amusement Park Recalls Eclipse Glasses

A New Jersey shore amusement park is warning customers who bought special glasses to watch the solar eclipse to return them.

Jenkinson's Boardwalk in Point Pleasant Beach announced on Facebook Sunday that does not recommend using the glasses to view Monday's eclipse. The company says there are questions about the glasses' certification.

Jenkinson's says it will issue a full refund to anyone who purchased the glasses.

"We will issue a full refund to anyone who purchased our solar eclipse glasses. Please return them to where you purchased them or mail them to 500 Boardwalk, Point Pleasant Beach, NJ 08742 for a full refund. Please contact with any questions," Jenkinson's posted to Facebook.

"We would like to apologize for this inconvenience, as we were assured by the supplier that the Solar Eclipse Glasses we purchased were in fact ISO Certified and safe to distribute."

Monday's total eclipse will cast a shadow that will race through 14 states. All of North America will get at least a partial eclipse.
