Michaels Stores announced a recall of tree tea light candle holders in The United States and Canada because the tea light cups are near the candle flame and can ignite other parts of the holder, posing a fire and burn hazard.
To this date, there have been six reports of incidents which include five fires and one consumer who suffered minor burns.
The recall involves 16 inch silver tea light candle holders in the shape of a Christmas tree. They were sold exclusively at Michaels Stores nationwide. The CPSC News Release includes photos of the recalled candle holder for reference.
Consumers are urged to stop using the recalled items and to return them to any Michaels store for a refund. For more information, call Michaels directly at (800) 642-4235, or visit them online at www.michaels.com.
