We think the danger lurking with candles is accidental fire, but surprise! Your candle could cut you too. Yankee Candle is recalling 31,000 candles from their Luminous Collection because they pose a "laceration hazard" when lit. The glass container may crack when you light the candle, thus putting the user at risk for a cut.
