THE CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION (CPSC) AND TARGET CORP. ANNOUNCE RECALL OF 230,000 BIRCH AND BARK CANDLES FOR FIRE AND BURN HAZARD

Jun 26, 2005 | www.Newsinferno.com

The CPSC, in cooperation with Target Corp. of Minneapolis, Minnesota, has announced a voluntary recall of 230,000 Birch and Bark Candles manufactured in China. Consumers should stop using the recalled product immediately.

The birch and bark surrounding the candles can ignite, posing a fire and burn hazard. While no injuries have been reported, there have been 18 reports of the birch and bark candles catching fire and five reports of property damage.
The candles were sold individually wrapped in a ribbon on a plate at Target stores nationwide from September 2004 through January 2005 for between $6 and $15.

The candles are cream in color and were sold in sizes 3-by-3 inches, 3-by-6 inches, 4-by-6 inches and 6-by-6 inches.
Consumers should return the candles to the nearest Target store to receive a gift card from Target in the amount of $15, plus applicable state taxes.

For additional information, contact Target at (800) 440-0680 between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.target.com.
