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.
