Recall of the Week: Yankee Candle Co.’s pine berry candle rings due to fire hazard

The Yankee Candle Co. is recalling about 15,000 pine berry candle rings in U.S. and 2,000 in Canada

Candle RingLARGEThe candle rings’ synthetic foliage and berries are flammable, posing a fire hazard, said the company and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. No injuries have been reported.

The 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 candle rings were sold at 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.

Consumers should immediately stop using the candle rings and return them to the nearest Yankee Candle store for a refund, the company and commission advise. Or consumers can call The Yankee Candle Company for instructions on obtaining a full refund.
