WASHINGTON(AP) -- Bath & Body Works Inc. is recalling some 733,000 votive candles because they can burn with high or irregular flames and pose a fire hazard.
The Reynoldsburg, Ohio-based company has received nine reports of high flames, including two instances of minor injuries, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
Bath & Body Works and The White Barn Candle Co. stores sold the "Real Essence" scented candles, individually and in packs of six, nationwide from March 2003 to February for $1.25 to $18.00.
Recalled fragrances are Rosewood Tea, Lilac Blossom, Vintage Leather, Brushed Suede, Warm Vanilla Sugar, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, Spiced Cider and Amber Myrrh. Recalled six-candle sets are Lilac Blossom, Spiced Cider and Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin. Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin was also sold in a "scented home quartet" set.
Consumers are advised to stop using the candles and return them to any Bath & Body Works or The White Barn Candle Co. store for credit, exchange or refund. For more information, the company can be reached at 800-395-1001, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. EST, Monday through Friday.
