Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

ghost candle holdersBefore you pack up your Halloween decor, make sure you don't have these tealight candle holders. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of about 30,000 of them due to the fact that they can ignite. Obviously, this poses a fire and burn hazard.

The recalled tealight holders are made from metal in the shape of a white ghost with a black base. They were sold by Crate & Barrel as a set of 3 (SKU #370-846 and/or Catalog Item #X2006) and by other retailers as individual units (SKU #770123). The SKU can be located on the product's packaging.

The tealight holders were made in China and imported by Trade Associates Group of Chicago. They were available through Crate & Barrel's October catalog and stores nationwide from August 2008 to October 2008 for about $10 for a set of 3, and other houseware retail stores nationwide from August 2008 to October 2008 for between $3 and $5 for individually packaged units.

If you have these recalled tealight holders, you should stop using them immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund. For more information on purchases made from Crate & Barrel, you can call them at (800) 451-8217 between 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. CT Monday through Sunday.
