CPSC, Midwest of Cannon Falls Inc. Announce Recall of Candles WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Midwest of Cannon Falls Inc., of Cannon Falls, Minn., is voluntarily recalling about 2,000 novelty candles. When the duck- shaped candle burns, the pooling of wax can ignite the paint on the duck, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers. CPSC and Midwest of Cannon Falls have not received any reports of injuries. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injury. The candles are 3 1/2 inches tall and are in the shape of a yellow duck sitting on a green base. The duck has a blue ribbon around its neck, and has an orange beak. A label on the bottom of the candle has the UPC code - 7 38449 38819 8 - and says, "Made in China." Gift shops, drug stores, and florists nationwide sold the candles from September 2000 through January 2001 for about $2. Consumers should stop using the candles immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a refund. For more information, call Midwest of Cannon Falls toll-free at (800) 776-2075 between 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday, or log on to the company's website at www.midwestofcannonfalls.com.
