Hallmark Issues Recall on Thousands of Holiday Scented Candles


Candles are an essential part of the holiday season.

Whether you lit some scented candles to get your home ready for the holiday season or received them as gifts from your loved ones, you're going to want to double check the label.

Why? Because Hallmark has issued a recall on roughly 4,500 candles.

The recall, issued on Dec 20, pertains to the “Frosted Balsam” glass candles, a blend of balsam, spruce and holly.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission received multiple reports of glass jars shattering and posing “fire and laceration hazards.”

Despite the 6 reports, no injuries have been reported.

The “Frosted Balsam” candles are green, feature three wicks, and an image of a snow-covered pine cone.

All candles were sold exclusively at Norman’s Hallmark stores in New Jersey and Pennsylvania from September through December 2019.

They feature the following codes: date code is 9211D, SKU code is XKT1747, and UPC code is 763795556991.

“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled candles and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund of the purchase price and a $10 Hallmark Gold Crown gift card,” Hallmark’s website states.

For more information, contact Hallmark at 800-425-5627 from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit their product page.
