Consumers are being warned that Vance Kitira spice candles sold in the U.S. are being recalled because cinnamon sticks on the products may unintentionally ignite, creating a fire hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Wednesday.
The CPSC also said the candles were not sold with information on how to trim the wick.
The recall affects about 2,000 candles sold between May 2006 and June 2007 for about $20 US each.
New Jersey-based importer Vance Kitira has learned of one incident in which a cinnamon stick caught fire. No injuries were reported.
The candles have a diameter of about 10 cm and are 15 cm tall. The candles are marked on the bottom with the item number CS406BR.
Consumers should stop using the candles, and contact the company for instructions on how to remove the cinnamon sticks and trim the wick.
