December 23, 2013

Synthetic foliage and berries are said to be flammable.


Yankee Candle, in conjunction with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (www.cpsc.gov), recalled its candle ring in Pine Berry, as the candle rings’ synthetic foliage and berries are flammable, posing a fire hazard. About 15,000 are being recalled in the US and 2,000 in Canada.
 
The recalled decorative pine berry candle ring goes around the base of a candle and is made of synthetic green foliage with synthetic red berries and pinecones. The ring measures about 9 to 10 inches in diameter and has an opening of about 4 to 4 1/2 inches.  Candle rings with UPC number 8 86860 02558 8 or 8 86860 06357 3 on a tag attached to the underside of the ring are included in the recall. The products were manufactured in China.
 
No injuries were reported at press time. The products were sold by Hallmark and Yankee Candle retail stores nationwide, Yankee Candle catalogs and online at Yankeecandle.com from September 2013 through October 2013 for between $8 and $10.
