Announce Terra Cotta Candle Set Recall WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), IMSA International Inc. of El Paso, Texas, is voluntarily recalling about 50,000 three-piece terra cotta potted candle sets. The clay pots may overheat and catch fire. IMSA International received three reports of the clay pots catching fire. One consumer burned her face attempting to blow out the fire. In another case, the pots flamed up causing fire and smoke damage to wallpaper and tile. The two-ounce candles, measuring two inches high, are potted in terra cotta clay flower pots or vases and shrink wrapped in a small terra cotta tray. Dollar Tree stores in the South, East, and Midwest sold sets of three terra cotta candles for $1 from April 1 through April 24, 1996. Consumers should not use the candle sets and should return them to the store where purchased for a full refund. For more information, consumers should contact IMSA at (800) 351-1041. [Source]
