Crate & Barrel Recalls Candles for Fire Hazard

Crate and Barrel just issued a recall for <"http://www.yourlawyer.com/practice_areas/product_liability">Succulent Plant-Shaped Candles in a Pot due to fire hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada (HC) just announced.

About 5,400 Succulent Plant-Shaped Candles in a Pot were recalled in the U.S. and about 90 in Canada because he wax in this candle melts quickly inside and overflows outside the pot and can ignite, posing a serious burn and fire hazard to consumers. To date, the firm has received one report of the wax igniting. No injuries or property damage were reported.

The Succulent Plant-Shaped Candles in a Pot were manufactured in China and imported by Crate and Barrel, a division of Euromarket Designs Inc., of Northbrook, Illinois.

This recall involves a set of nine succulent plant-shaped green candles in clay pots that were sold in a black container with a SKU number of 557-806. The SKU numbers are on the bottom of the original packaging. The recalled Succulent Plant-Shaped Candles in a Pot were sold at Crate and Barrel stores and online at www.crateandbarrel.com from February 2010 through April 2010 for about $7.

The CPSC and HC are advising consumers to immediately stop using the candles and return the product to any Crate and Barrel store for a full refund. Consumers who purchased the recalled candles through Crate and Barrel’s catalog or on the firm’s Web site should contact Crate and Barrel to arrange to return the candles for a full refund. Crate and Barrel can be reached toll-free at (800) 451-8217 between 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Central Time, Monday through Sunday or at the firm’s website at http://www.crateandbarrel.com.
