A new study finds that many children are badly hurt each year with ready to eat soups.

Researchers looked at more than 4,500 burns in children aged 4-12.

They found that 20-percent of scald burns were caused by microwaving instant soup, such as Ramen.

Experts recommend parents being extra cautious when allowing children to handle the meals.
