The U.S.Consumer Product Safety Commission and Nordstrom, Inc. have announced a recall of about 2,500 "At Home" taper and votive candles
, due to the fact that the exterior coating of the candle could ignite and pose a fire hazard. Although no injuries have been reported, Nordstrom has received one property damage report, and four reports of flames or smoke coming from the candle exterior coating.
The candles were manufactured in Taiwan and sold at all Nordstrom stores from September 2007 through December 2007. The silver and gold "At Home" taper candles were sold in a package of six for about $18 and the votive candles were sold in a package of six for about $12. Please check out the CPSC press release
to see the style numbers of the recalled candles.
Consumers should stop using the candles and return to any Nordstrom for a full refund. For further information, you may contact Nordstrom 24 hours a day at (800) 804-0806, visit their website at www.nordstrom.com
