Yankee Candle Taper Candles Recalled Over Paint That Can Ignite
So far, there are no reports of injuries or cases of the candles igniting. About 33,000 of the 10-inch tapers were sold in Yankee Candle shops from October to November 2010 for about $2 each. The candles have $1.99 and the UPC codes of either 609032492687 or 609032492694 printed on the plastic wrapping.Consumers should not use the candles, but return them to any Yankee Candle store for a full refund. Consumers can call General Wax & Candle at (800) 543-0642 weekdays between noon and 8 p.m. Eastern Time or visit the company's website.
The candles were made in the United States.
In June, Crate and Barrel recalled plant-shaped candles that melted too quickly and could catch its pot on fire.
