Yankee Candle Recalling Luminous Candles Due to Laceration Hazard

The glass jar can crack when the candle is lit, posing a laceration hazard

December 9, 2016

Yankee Candle is recalling approximately 31,000 fragrance candles in its Luminous Collection—in addition to roughly 300 sold in Canada—due to a laceration hazard.

When the candle is lit, the jar holding it can crack. This poses a laceration hazard to anyone handling the jar.

The affected candles are part of Yankee Candle's Luminous Collection fragrance candles. The candles are made of a fragrant wax with three wicks placed in square glass jars. The item number can be found printed on the bottom of the jar. The candles measure about four inches wide by five inches high.

The recalled candles were sold only at Yankee Candle stores across the country as well as online from September 2016 until November 2016 for roughly $35.

There have been no injuries reported related to this recall, though the company has received 16 reports of the jar cracking.

Consumers are encouraged to immediately stop using the affected candles and to contact the company for a full refund.

For more information, consumers can reach Yankee Candle at (877) 803-6890.
