Hallmark Creations Recalls Tea Light Lamps

Tea LampKansas City, MO (SafetyAlerts) - Hallmark Specialty Retail Marketing Group Inc. operating under the name Hallmark Creations, is voluntarily recalling about 1,300 metal and plastic tea light lamps. The plastic shade that covers the tea light candle can melt, posing a fire hazard.

Hallmark has received three reports of the lampshade melting. No injuries have been reported.

The lamp has a clear plastic lampshade that covers a base for holding candles. A dark brown curved S-shaped support wire that is decorated with leaves supports the lampshade. The recalled lamp is about 12-inches tall and 4-inches in diameter. The labels on the bottom of the base read "Creations" and "MADE IN TAIWAN."

Hallmark Creations stores nationwide sold these lamps from January 2001 through May 2001 for about $12.

Consumers should stop using the lamps immediately and return them to a Hallmark Creations store for a refund. For more information, call Hallmark toll-free at (800) 425-5627 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
