The recalled DayNa Decker Botanika Candles, which were manufactured in the United States, were manufactured by the Southern California Candle Co. Inc., of Los Angeles, California and distributed by Lumetique Inc., of Los Angeles, California.

This recall involves DayNa Decker Botanika brand candles sold in 3-, 6-, and 16-ounce glass containers.
The words “DayNa Decker” and Bacara, Bardou, Clementine, Indigo, Leila, Manzanita, Sierra, Taiga, Violetta, Viva, Yasmin, or Zelia appear on the bottom of the green glass container. Only Botanika candles with batch code 9J3, 9K1, 9L1 or 9L2 are included in the recall. Batch codes are printed on the bottom of the glass container.
The recalled DayNa Decker Botanika Candles were sold at resorts, spas, gift shops, and specialty stores nationwide from November 2009 through January 2010 for between $30 and $75, depending on the size.
