These candles present a fire hazard because their flasks can overheat and burn with high flames. CPSC and RJS have received two reports from consumers that the candle displayed high flames and the leather wrap melted, which resulted in minor property damage. No injuries have been reported. The Ralph Lauren Thoroughbred Candles are silver votives that have a saddle-brown-color leather wrap sleeves, and are filled with yellow wax. They have item code RLT027 on their packaging. The packaging is a multicolored brown and green paisley paper box with clear front cover, green ribbon and hangtag. A hang tag is attached to the packaging showing a horse and rider scene.

Major department stores and specialty stores, including Polo, Bloomingdales and Saks 5th Avenue, nationwide have sold these candles between September 1995 and April 1998 for about $30. Consumers should stop using these candles immediately, and return them to the place of purchase for a refund.
