CoScentrix has issued its third recall expansion for candles sold exclusively at Hobby Lobby.

About 168,000 candles have been added to the recall, which was initially announced in August 2014 after reports that the candle's high flame can ignite the surface of the wax. In total, the company received more than 30 reports of the candle's surface igniting, one report of injury and 10 reports of property damage.

About 550,000 candles have been recalled since last year.

This recall includes four types of DD branded single-wick candles: Mason jars in 5- and 12- ounce sizes, decorative jars in 10- and 20-ounce sizes, 13-ounce coffee tins and 13-ounce jars with a holiday theme. The candles were sold in a variety of fragrances and colors.

A complete list of recalled candles with their corresponding SKU numbers can be found on the Consumer Product Safety Commission website. The SKU number is on a label on the underside of each container.

They were sold exclusively at Hobby Lobby stores nationwide and online from June 2014 through October 2014 for between $6 and $20.

Consumers should immediately stop using the candles and return them to the nearest Hobby Lobby. Consumers with a receipt will receive a full refund, but those without a receipt will be issued a store credit. Online purchasers should contact CoScentrix for instructions on returning the product.
