According to the Dec. 2 recall notice issued by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the recalled candle can emit unusually high flames, igniting the surrounding wax and causing the candle’s glass encasement to break. As of the recall date, there had been two reports of the candles’ flames reaching above its glass container, causing the vessel to break. No injuries have been reported as of yet.
The candles, produced by Adco Trading Inc., were sold exclusively at Dollar Tree stores in the U.S. between Jul. 2020 and Sept. 2020. Anyone with one of the candles at home “should immediately stop using the Sure Scents 2-1 Peaceful Stream/Moonlit Waves candles and contact Dollar Tree for a full refund,” the CPSC reports.
