Fort Worth, TX—The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Health Canada and Pier 1 Imports® voluntarily recalled about 370,000 tea lights in United States and 30,000 tea lights in Canada for fire hazards. The CPSC announced the product recall on February 24, 2011.

The product recall was initiated after discovering that the flame from the tea lights can burn with a high flame, which poses a fire hazard.

“This recall involves all tea lights in golden tin cups sold in sets of five with either the Red Ornament Tea Light Holder (SKU 2473959) or the White Ornament Tea Light Holder (SKU 2473961). The SKU number is found on the packaging,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to return the tea lights to the nearest Pier 1 Imports store to receive new tea lights.
