Description: Clearfire Candles Recalled by Candle-lite NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CONTACT: Nychelle White October 15, 1996 (301) 504-7063 Release # 97-005 CPSC and Candle-lite Announce Recall of Clearfire Candles WASHINGTON, DC - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Candle-lite of Cincinnati, Ohio, is voluntarily recalling approximately 3,000,000 Clearfire candles sold primarily during the 1995 Christmas season. The candles could flare up during use, causing the candles' glass holders to overheat and break. Consumers could be burned or injured by broken glass. Candle-lite is aware of 142 instances of candles flaring-up and glass breaking. Several consumers have been burned by hot gel or cut by broken glass. The candles, which are made of a clear, gel-like substance, were available in five styles: red with an apple cider scent, green with a spruce forest scent, clear with a floral vanilla scent, blue with a mulberry scent, and yellow with a sunflower scent. Each candle was packaged in a textured, clear glass jar, shaped like a vase, measuring approximately three inches high. A label on the bottom of the glass container has a UPC number beginning with "076001" and ending with one of the following numbers: CODE TYPE OF GLASS COLOR/SCENT 304737 Diamond Point Red/Apple Cider 304744 Diamond Point Green/Spruce Forest 304959 Reflections Red/Apple Cider 304966 Reflections Green/Spruce Forest 304997 American Whitehall Red/Apple Cider 305000 American Whitehall Green/Spruce Forest 305192 Roly Poly Red/Apple Cider 305208 Roly Poly Green/Spruce Forest 305222 Pineapple Red/Apple Cider 305239 Pineapple Green/Spruce Forest 306878 Pineapple Blue/Mulberry 306885 Pineapple Clear/Floral Vanilla 306892 Pineapple Yellow/Sunflower 307356 Pineapple Red/Apple Cider 307363 Pineapple Green/Spruce Forest 307554 Sherbert Red/Apple Cider 307561 Sherbert Green/Spruce Forest 307745 Pineapple Clear/Floral Vanilla 806712 Heart Red/Apple Cider 806729 Ponderosa Green/Spruce Forest 806750 Reflections Red/Apple Cider 806767 Reflections Green/Spruce Forest Major discount chain stores sold these candles nationwide from October 1995 through April 1996 for approximately $4.00. Clearfire candles are now sold with a new formula and plastic covers over the top. The Clearfire candles currently in retail stores are not subject to this recall. Consumers should stop using the recalled candles immediately, pull out the wick, and then dispose of the gel-like substance. Consumers should remove the UPC label from the bottom of the glass container. In order to receive a $6.00 refund, consumers should mail the wick and the UPC label, along with their name and complete address to: Candle-lite, Post Office Box 42486, Cincinnati, OH 45242.
