The Christmas Tree Shops Recalls Holiday Candle Warmers for Fire/Burn Risks

Middleboro, MA — The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and The Christmas Tree Shops have recalled about 5,700 holiday-themed tea light candle warmers for fire and burn hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide recall on February 1, 2012.

The holiday-themed tea light candle warmers were recalled after discovering that they can catch fire, because the warming bowl is positioned too close to the tea light candle. This defect poses a burn and fire hazard to consumers.

One report of a consumer sustaining a minor burn injury to their hand has been reported by The Christmas Tree Shops.

“This recall involves holiday-themed tea light candle warmers in the shapes of snowmen and gingerbread houses. A warming bowl with wax fragrance tablets is suspended above the tea light candle. The Snowmen model has SKU/UPC 000016005396 and the Gingerbread house model has SKU/UPC 000016005372 printed on a label on the bottom of the product. The tea light candle warmers are about eight inches tall,” reported the CPSC.

The warmers were sold for about $8 at Christmas Tree Shops in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest.

Consumers are advised to return the candle warmers to any Christmas Tree Shops for a full refund.
