Yankee Candle pulls product over laceration hazard


Yankee Candle is recalling about 31,000 of its luminous fragrance collection candles because the square glass jars can crack when the candle is lit, posing a laceration hazard. The company has received 16 reports of the jars cracking.

The candles were sold exclusively at Yankee Candle stores nationwide and online from September through November.

If you have one, you can call the company between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 8 p.m. Saturday & Sunday at  877-803-6890 for a full refund.
