Neiman Marcus Group Has Recalled Pine Tree Candles

Dallas, Texas  (SafetyAlerts) - The Neiman Marcus Group Inc. has recalled about 620 Pine Tree Candles. The candles can collapse, causing the flame and hot wax to spread and posing a fire hazard to consumers.

Another retailer received one report of a similar candle that collapsed and spread the flame. No injuries or property damage were reported. Neither Neiman Marcus nor Bergdorf Goodman stores have received any reports of incidents or injuries.

The Pine Tree Candle is shaped like a pine tree, and comes in three colors (lime green, royal blue and gold) and three sizes. The small candle is about 8 inches tall and 5 1/2 inches wide, the medium-sized candle is about 9 inches tall and 6 inches wide, and the tall candle is about 111/2 inches tall and 31/2 inches wide. There is a round sticker on the bottom of each candle that contains warnings regarding the use of the candle, and indicates that the candle is made in Italy. The packaging for each candle also has a sales sticker with a SKU number. The SKU Number for the lime green candle is 3162 4045, and the SKU Number for the royal blue candle is 3162 4037. The SKU numbers for the gold candle are 57604026 (for the small candle), 57604034 (for the medium-sized candle) and 57604042 (for the large candle).

Neiman Marcus stores nationwide and Bergdorf Goodman stores in New York sold the candles from the early Fall through December 21, 2001 for $12- $14 (for the small candle), $15 (for the medium candle), and $26 (for the large candle).

Customers should stop using these candles immediately and return them to any Neiman Marcus or Bergdorf Goodman store for a full refund. For more information, call Neiman Marcus at (800) 634-6267 anytime.
