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.
Thankfully, no injuries have been reported, but Yankee says it has received 16 reports of cracked jars.
Wondering if you’re about to light a laceration hazard of your own? Here are the recalled candles. Check the bottom of your candle for these fragrances and numbers.
Sea Salt & Coral: 535651
Blackberry & Sage: 1535890
Apple Blossom & Melon: 1535891
Sugarcane & Honey: 1535892
