Kmart Recalls Gift Gallery Potpourri Burner

Washington, DC -- Kmart, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), is voluntarily recalling an estimated 18,000 Gift Gallery Potpourri Burners, Item #20-00-21, which sold for $5.97 at Kmart stores from September 1990 through February 1991.
