Walmart recalls 1.2M candles over fire, laceration hazards
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the fast track recall of 1.2 million candles sold exclusively at Walmart because heat from the flame can cause the glass containers to shatter.
Walmart says it has received a dozen reports of the Mainstays Three-Wick candles burning too close to the side of the container and the glass cracking, resulting in one report of a minor cut and multiple reports of damage to nearby items. There has been one reported fire.
The candles are in round 14-ounce glass jars sold with Halloween and autumn themes. They wer sold at Walmart stores nationwide and online at www.walmart.com from September 2022 through November 2022 for about $7.
The candles were sold with a metal lid and in seven different names: Jack-O-Lantern, Mystic Fog, Warm Apple Pie, Warm Fall Leaves, Fall Farm House, Pumpkin Spice and Magic Potion. Mainstays and the candle’s name are printed on the side of the candle. The candles are about 4 inches long by 4 inches wide.
