About 4.9 million Target candles were recalled Thursday, after six people were reported injured, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Threshold candles, available at Target between August 2019 and March 2023, are at risk of cracking or breaking with use, the CPSC said in a recall notice.
More than 100 people reported issues with candle jars breaking or breaking, and six people reported injuries, including lacerations and severe burns.
“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled candles and return them to any Target store for a full refund or contact Target to receive a prepaid return label to return the candles via in the mail,” the recall notice said.
Target spokesman Joe Unger said in a statement to The Associated Press that the company is “committed to providing high-quality and safe products to our guests” and urged customers to return “any items which has been recalled.”
