Over 7 million candles have been recalled due to concerns that the cup holding the candles could melt or catch fire.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission has stated that the defective products, tea light type candles, were sold under the brand names Chesapeake Bay Candle and Modern Light.
The affected candles were sold in Massachusetts and nationwide at retailers such as Home Goods, Target, and Wegmans between July 2009 and February 2011.
The clear plastic cup holding the candles is at risk for melting or igniting during use. There has been one consumer report of the candle’s plastic cup melting during use.
