Nantucket Distributing has recalled about 5,700 holiday-themed tea light candle warmers because they can catch fire because the warming bowl is positioned too close to the tea light candle, posing fire and burn hazards, the Consumer Product Safety Commission reported today.
Nantucket Distributing has received one report of the Snowmen candle warmer catching on fire causing a minor burn injury to a consumer’s hand.
About eight inches tall, the recalled tea light candle warmers in the shapes of snowmen and gingerbread houses. A warming bowl with wax fragrance tablets is suspended above the tea light candle. The Snowmen model has SKU/UPC 000016005396 and the Gingerbread house model has SKU/UPC 000016005372 printed on a label on the bottom of the product.
Sold for about $8 at the Christmas Tree Shops in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest from November through December 2011.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled tea light candle warmers and return them to any Christmas Tree Shops store to receive a full refund.
