Description: Paper Candle Shades Recalled by MacKenzie-Childs NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Office of Information and Public Affairs Washington, DC 20207 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE September 1, 1998 Release # 98-162 Company Phone Number: (800) 640-0488 CPSC Consumer Hotline: (800) 638-2772 CPSC Media Contact: Ken Giles, (301) 504-7052 CPSC, MacKenzie-Childs Ltd. Announce Recall of Paper Candle Shades WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), MacKenzie-Childs Ltd., of Aurora, N.Y., is recalling about 42,000 paper candle shades. Use of the paper shade with a candle presents a fire hazard. MacKenzie-Childs has received three reports of the paper shades igniting after contacting the flame of the accompanying candle. There is one report of minor property damage. No injuries have been reported. The paper shades are decorated with various colors and designs, beads and ribbons. "MacKenzie-Childs, Ltd" is printed inside the shades. The shades measure about 5 inches high, 2 inches wide on top and 6 inches wide on bottom. The shades are designed to sit on top of a candle with the use of a metal candle follower. The top of the candle follower supports the shade, and the bottom sits on top of the candle and moves down the length of the candle as it melts. Specialty gift and department stores nationwide sold the paper shades from January 1992 through April 1998 for about $38 to $95. Consumers should immediately stop using the paper shades with candles. Consumers should return the original paper shade to the store where purchased to receive a free, replacement paper shade that is fire-resistant. For more information, consumers can call MacKenzie-Childs at (800) 640-0488 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. EDT Monday through Friday. [Source]
