A Yankee Candle recall is being issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) as the product poses a fire hazard.
The Yankee Candle Company product is called Candle Ring – Pine Berry and it is made of synthetic material that could catch on fire easily. CPSC is urging consumers to stop using the product and return it to the store they bought it from for a full refund.
The Yankee Candle recall affects about 15,000 units in the U.S. and 2,000 in Canada. The item goes around a candle which could easily cause a fire due to the synthetic foliage that the product is made of.
Hallmark and Yankee Candle stores sold the item from September 2013 through October 2013 for $8 to $10.
