Alco Industries Recalls Water Fountains With Candle Holders
 

Edison, N.J.  (SafetyAlerts) - Alco Industries Inc. has recalled about 75,000 water fountains with candle holders. The tea candles on the water fountains can flare up, posing fire and burn hazards to consumers.

Alco Industries has received two reports of candles flaring up, including two consumers who suffered burn injuries.

The recalled water fountains have a black base and two tiers of rocks over which water flows. The decorative rocks come in various shapes and colors. Two candles are perched above the fountain, set in black candle holders, and lit behind a painted glass cover. A sticker on the bottom of the fountain reads, "Made in China." The "Submersible Pump" attached to the bottom of the fountain reads in part, "Jebo" and "Made in China"

Mass Retailers nationwide sold these water fountain candle sets from February 2001 through October 2001 for between $10 and $20.

Consumers should stop using the tea candles immediately and return the water fountain set to the store where purchased for a full refund or a replacement of the tea candles.
