DayNa Decker 16 ounce Candles recalled due to fire hazard

Health Canada is recalling DayNa Decker 16-oz candles, sold under the brand name "Botanika," because the glass can break during use, posing a fire hazard.

The recalled candles were sold in 16-oz green, glass vessels that are about 10 centimetres wide by 13 centimetres high. The words, "DayNa Decker," as well as either "Bacara," "Bardou," "Clementine," "Indigo," "Leila," "Manzanita," "Sierra," "Violetta," "Yasmin" or "Zelia" appear on the bottom of the glass vessel.

Botanika candles in the smaller three ounce and six ounce size glass vessels are not included in the recall.

Lumetique Inc., the candle distributor, has received 10 reports of the glass breaking during use. In two of the cases the breakage caused fires that damaged household items. One consumer reported a cut on her foot when the glass broke while another reported a wax burn from blowing out the candle.

No injuries or incidents involving the use of the candles have been reported to Health Canada.

About 204 of the recalled candles, manufactured by Southern California Candle Co. Inc. of Los Angeles, were sold at various retail stores in Canada from March 2008 to April 2009.

Consumers are urged to stop using the candles immediately.
