CAPE CORAL, Fla.- A decorative candle ring has been recalled due to the danger of catching fire, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Cape Coral Fire Department.
The recalled decorative pine berry candle ring manufactured by Yankee Candle 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.
There have been no incidents or injuries reported, but officials feel it is best to recall this item due to the potential of ignition when near an open flame.
Consumers should immediately stop using the candle rings and return them to the nearest Yankee Candle store for a refund, or call The Yankee Candle Company for instructions on obtaining a full refund.
The ring has been 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.
