    Post FYI Fire hazard product recall

    Scented candles recalled because of possible fire hazards
    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
    through Friday.
