Pottery Barn recalls candles for fire hazard

Pottery barn is recalling about 68,000 Gourd candles because they pose a fire and burn hazard to consumers.

The candles may burn strongly and fail to self-extinguish once they burn to the bottom.

The recall involves five styles of the gourd-shaped candles along with sets of eight mini-gourd candles.

The candles were sold at Pottery Barn stores, and through the company catalogue and website from September 2006 through October 2006.

Consumers should stop using the candles and contact the company for a refund.
