Glass votive candle holders are being recalled because they pose a fire and laceration hazard, according to news reports .
The recalled items are small glass candle holders that were imported by Greenbrier International Inc. of Chesapeake, Va., and sold at Dollar Tree, Dollar Bill$, Deal$ and Dollar Tree Deal$ stores nationwide from December 2010 through April 2011, according to news reports. About 117,000 items are affected by the recall.
The candle holders pose serious injury risks because they can shatter while in use, posing a fire and laceration hazard.
So far, no injuries have been reported, but the firm has received one report of a candle holder shattering, according to news reports.
As a Columbia personal injury attorney , I urge consumers to stop using this product to protect themselves from potentially serious injuries. For more information, contact Dollar Tree Stores at 800-876-8077 or visit the firm’s website at http://www.dollartree.com.
While we don’t handle this kind of recall we feel that it’s important to educate the community to help protect their health and safety. If you have been injured by a recalled product, you might wish to contact an Columbia personal injury lawyer who can help.
