Announce Recall of Floral Candles WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Amscan Inc., of Elmsford, N.Y., is recalling 6,000 floral candles. These candles' containers can break and allow hot wax to escape. The hot wax can cause burns and the broken candle container creates a potential fire hazard. Amscan Inc. received one report of the candle container breaking while in use. No injuries have been reported. These 2 1/2-inch-high, scented floral candles come in a container that resemble a flower pot. They were sold in assorted colors, including red, white, purple, pink and yellow. They were sold wrapped in plastic with a sticker on the bottom of the candle reading, "Made in China" along with the UPC symbol. Party supply stores nationwide sold the floral candles from January 1998 through March 1998 for about $2. Consumers should stop using the candles immediately and return them to the store where they were purchased for a refund. For more information, consumers should call Amscan toll-free at (800) 335-7585 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday. [Source]
