7 Million Tea Light Candles Recalled

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — More than seven million tea lights are under a voluntary recall because they could pose a fire hazard.

The candles were sold under the brand names Chesapeake Bay Candle and Modern Light.

Pacific Trade, the importer, received a report that the clear plastic cup with the candle melted while the tea light was in use.

So far, no one has been hurt.

For more information about the recall, visit the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s website or call Pacific Trade International between 9 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. at (800) 331-8339.
