Thousands of candles recalled across Canada due to “fire and burn hazard” – Canada News


Did you buy candles before the winter holidays?

If so, you might want to check your cabinets and drawers.

Health Canada has issued a recall to consumers of thousands of candles sold between November and December 2020.

This recall involves the Revive 3-Wick Soy Candle in a glass jar with white wax, topped with a decorative metal cover engraved with the Melaleuca leaf and drop.

The high flames of the candle can ignite the surface of the wax, posing a fire and burn hazard, a press release explains.

The company indicated that 3,103 units of the affected product had been sold in Canada; they were made in the United States.

Two perfumes were sold:

  • Revive 3-Wick Soy Candle – Winter Cedar, Melaleuca Part Number 1010030041
  • Revive 3-Wick Soy Candle – Hot Spicy Latte, Melaleuca SKU Number 1010030040

What you should do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled product, cut all three wicks as short as possible, and then dispose of the candles in their household garbage.

For more information, consumers can contact Melaleuca of Canada, Inc. toll-free at 1-800-742-8094 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT, Monday through Friday.

Please note that the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits the recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.

Health Canada would like to remind Canadians to report any health or safety incidents related to the use of this or any other consumer or cosmetic product by completing the Consumer Product Incident Report Form.

This recall is also posted on the OECD Global Portal on the Product Recalls website. You can visit this site for more information on other international consumer product recalls.

As of December 29, 2020, the company had not received any incident or injury reports in Canada.
