Kmart Corp. Recalling Ceramic Potpourri Houses
Troy, MI (SafetyAlerts) - Kmart Corporation, in
cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling an
estimated 15,000 Ceramic Potpourri Houses, Item #32- 67-47, which sold for $5.97 at K mart
stores since June, 1989.
The tealight candle, which is sold with the Ceramic Potpourri House, burns too hot and
poses a risk of fire. The firm reports at least 12 incidents where the product caught on
fire which resulted in minor property damage and no injuries.
Consumers should return the Ceramic Potpourri House to any K mart store for their choice
of a full refund of the purchase price, replacement with a new potpourri house or
replacement of the original tealight candle with a box of ten new tealight candles.
