Hobby Lobby Metal Tin Candle Recall Issued Due to Fire Risk
Roughly 126,000 metal tin candles sold exclusively through Hobby Lobby have been recalled, following reports of the candles surface igniting, suggesting that the product poses an unreasonable risk of fires or burns.
A DD Brand Tin candles recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on August 12, following at least two consumer complaints where the high flame of the candle ignited the surface of the wax and the polymer coating on the tin-plated container. One of the reported incidents resulted in minor property damage, but no injuries have been reported.
The recall includes 4-ounce DD branded candles that were sold in a round metal tin and have a metal lid. The candles measure 2.75 inches wide and 2 inches high and were sold in 35 different fragrances and colors. The candles fragrance and the “DD” logo is printed on the outside of the can.
