Recall of the Week: Olympia Mountain Products tealight wax warmers due to fire and burn hazards

Warmer_TealightRound_GreenDSC_0100LARGEOlympia Mountain Products is recalling about 209,000 tealight wax warmer sets in the United States and 23,000 in Canada.

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.

This recall involves ceramic tealight warmer sets that include four tealight candles, four sets of scented wax cubes for melting, and a ceramic warmer with a metal stand and a glass dish to hold the wax cubes. 

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.
