Darice Recalls Candle Holders

Strongsville, OH  (SafetyAlerts) - Darice Inc. has recalled 60,000 wooden candle holders. When the candle burns down to the bottom of the wick it can set the candle holder on fire, which poses fire and burn hazards to consumers.

Darice Inc. has not received any reports of incidents. This recall is being conducted to prevent the possibility of injuries.

The recalled candle holders are constructed of unfinished wood and are designed to be painted or decorated. The candle holders, which are intended to support taper candles, come in five different shapes and sizes.

The Darice wholesale catalog, independent craft stores nationwide, including Pat Catan's Craft Centers and Ben Franklin Crafts, and Wal- Mart Stores, sold the candle holders from October 2000 through November 2001 for about $2.

Consumers should stop using these candle holders immediately and call Darice at (800) 321-1494 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday for a full refund. For more information, consumers should visit the company's website at
