With the arrival of the holiday season, Target is re-announcing a recall of clear acrylic Hanukkah menorahs. The menorahs can melt when the candles are burning, posing a fire hazard.

Target says that it has received eight reports of the product melting, including three reports of fire. No property damage or injuries have been reported.
The recalled menorahs are 10.5 inches long, 1.2 inches wide, and 2.3 inches high. Model number 240-14-0169 and bar code can be found on a round white label on the side of the menorah.
About 2,600 menorahs are included in the recall.
