Recall of the Week: DD brand candles sold at Hobby Lobby due to fire hazard

DD Candles 1PineappleLavender5ozMason5CoScentrix is recalling about 168,000 DD brand candles.

The company recalled about 256,000 candles sold in jars and tins November 2014 and about 126,000 candles sold in tins in April 2014.

The candle's high flame can ignite the surface of the wax, posing a fire hazard, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

CoScentrix has received one additional report of a candle’s surface igniting and no additional reports of injury or property damage. In the two previous recalls CoScentrix received a total of 31 reports of the candle's surface igniting, one report of injury, and 10 reports of property damage.

This recall involves four types of DD branded single-wick candles: Mason jars in 5- and 12- ounce sizes, decorative jars in 10- and 20-ounce sizes, 13-ounce coffee tins, and 13-ounce jars with a holiday theme. The candles were sold in a variety of fragrances and colors.

The 5-ounce Mason jars are 2.25 inches wide by 3.75 inches high. The 12-ounce Mason jars are 3 inches wide by 5 inches high. The jars have gray metal lids.

The DD logo and the word Handcrafted are in raised letters on the front of the jars. The candle fragrance and size are printed on a hang tang attached to the mouth of the jars.

The 10-ounce decorative jars are 4 inches wide by 3 inches high. The 20-ounce decorative jars are 5 inches wide by 4 inches high and hold a candle. The jars have gray metal lids with the DD logo in raised letters on the top. The candle fragrance and size are printed on a rectangular label on the front of the jar.

The 13-ounce coffee tins are 3.5 inches wide by 4 inches high and have a silver metal lid. The candle size and fragrance are printed on a label that wraps around the outside of the tin.

The 13-ounce holiday candle jars are 3.75 inches wide by 4 inches high and have silver metal lids with the DD logo in raised letters on the top.  The DD logo inside a floral wreath, the fragrance and size are printed directly onto the front of the jar in silver.
