Eds: Also moved on general news lines.
WASHINGTON(AP) - Bath & Body Works Inc. is recalling some
733,000 votive candles because they can burn with high or irregular
flames and pose a fire hazard.
The Reynoldsburg, Ohio-based company has received nine reports
of high flames, including two instances of minor injuries, the
Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday.
Bath & Body Works and The White Barn Candle Co. stores sold the
"Real Essence" scented candles, individually and in packs of six,
nationwide from March 2003 to February for $1.25 to $18.00.
Recalled fragrances are Rosewood Tea, Lilac Blossom, Vintage
Leather, Brushed Suede, Warm Vanilla Sugar, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin,
Spiced Cider and Amber Myrrh. Recalled six-candle sets are Lilac
Blossom, Spiced Cider and Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin. Sweet Cinnamon
Pumpkin was also sold in a "scented home quartet" set.
Consumers are advised to stop using the candles and return them
to any Bath & Body Works or The White Barn Candle Co. store for
credit, exchange or refund. For more information, the company can
be reached at 800-395-1001, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. EST, Monday
