Endar Corp. Recalls Candle Sets Sold in Wal-Mart Stores
- Endar Corp. is recalling 74,000 Ambria(tm) brand candle sets. The wax from
the candles can drip and ignite the potpourri. Additionally, when the candles are in close proximity, they generate a significant amount of heat.
Each of these hazards could lead to a fire, which could cause burn injuries
Wal-Mart has received no reports of incidents. This recall is being
conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.
The 9-Piece Harvest Centerpiece Collection candle set contains seven candles
(three white pillars, two red apple shaped novelty candles, and two yellow
leaf shaped novelty candles), potpourri and a round 12-inch copper color
Wal-Mart stores nationwide sold these candles from September 1, 2001 through
September 20, 2001 for about $10.
Consumers should stop using the candle sets immediately and return them to
any Wal-Mart store for a full refund. Consumers also can call Endar Corp.
