Schottenstein and Value City Stores Recall Candles

Columbus, Ohio (SafetyAlerts) - Schottenstein and Value City Department Stores are voluntarily recalling about 10,800 candles because the candle flame can ignite the silver paint coating on the candle container, presenting a fire hazard.

The candles were sold in two different size terracotta ceramic containers. One container has a vase-shape, leaf design and a silver paint coating and measures about 3.5 inches high. The other container has a jar-shape, rope design around the top of the container with a silver paint coating and measures about 2 inches high. Schottenstein and Value City Stores nationwide sold the candles from October 2000 through December 2000 for about $1.

No injuries have been reported.

Consumers should stop using the recalled candles immediately and contact Schottenstein or Value City Stores at (888) 278-6370 anytime to receive a refund and a $5 off coupon for use at Schottenstein or Value City Stores.
