The tealights in the warmers can burn with an erratic or high flame, posing fire and burn hazards, the company and U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.
Olympic Mountain Products has received 22 reports of tealights with erratic or high flames, including two minor burn injuries to consumers and one incident resulting in minor property damage.
The ceramic tealight warmers are white with a green glass dish or brown with an orange glass dish for the wax cubes. “Essenza” is printed on the front of the packaging and Costco item number #852473 is printed on the sides of the packaging.
The tealight wax warmers were sold only at Costco Wholesale stores nationwide from August 2014 through October 2014 for about $20.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled tealight wax warmer sets and return them to Costco for a full refund. Costco is contacting its customers directly, the company and commission advise.
