Potential Burn Hazard Prompts Tea Light Holder Recall

Posted on

Farm Glass & Metal Spiral Tea Light Holders imported by the Middleboro, Massachusetts-based Nantucket Distributing Company are being recalled due to a possible fire hazard associated with the product’s use.

The recalled spiral tea light holder features red, orange and green flowers painted on glass.  The product, which was produced in China, has a UPC number of 000015931955.  This number is displayed on the bottom of the item.  Tea lights can be contained within the item by way of a metal insert meant to display the lights within the glass body of the structure.  The recalled spiral tea lights were sold at Christmas Tree Shops throughout the country between July and March of last year.

At issue is a fault with the product’s design.  The lights can burn higher than what would be considered safe, and as such, persons using these lights are put at risk of being burned themselves.  Already the firm has received one report of a customer’s hand sustaining a burn due to a heightened flame.

Consumers who may be in possession of one or more of the 6,200 or so tea light holders affected by the recall are being advised to discontinue use immediately and return the item to any nearby Christmas Tree Shop.  A full refund is being issed on the product.

I’m sorry to see any product pose a danger as a personal injury attorney in Los Angeles.  It’s my desire that all products be safe for use, and barring that, I hope as a Fresno personal injury lawyer that everyone pays close attention to recall information so they can avert disaster.
