Soy Candles Recalled Due to Fire Hazards

August 31, 2012



Some Bath Petals candles were recalled by the CPSC.
• The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada, in cooperation with Bath Petals Inc., of Gardena, CA announced a voluntary recall of select soy candles—about 1,600 in the US and 1,200 in Canada.

According to the recall, the candle can burn with a high flame, causing excessive heat, which poses a fire hazard. The heat and flame can cause the glass candleholder to shatter. This poses a laceration hazard.

The firm has received one report of a candle burning with a high flame and shattering the glass holder. No injuries or property damage were reported.

The candles, manufactured in the US, are 7.5oz soy candles sold in four colors and scents: Australian Eucalyptus, California Rose Garden, French Alpine and Thai Lemongrass Ginger. “Bath petals” and the scent name are printed on the glass candleholder. The following UPC codes are on the bottom of the box: 6-10696-55269-3, 7-97734-03754-8, 7-97734-03755-5 and 7-97734-03758-6.

The products were sold at TJ Maxx and Marshalls in the US from February through April 2012 and at HomeSense, Winners and Marshalls in Canada in April 2012 for about $10.
