1.2 Million Walmart Products Recalled
Walmart is recalling 1.2 million candles over “fire and laceration hazards,” according to U.S. officials.
The recall pertains to about 1,210,000 Mainstays Three-Wicked Candles, sold exclusively at Walmart (both in-store and online) between Sept. 2022 and Nov. 2022, per the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
The candles sold for about $7. The varieties include: Jack-O-Lantern, Mystic Fog, Warm Apple Pie, Warm Fall Leaves, Fall Farm House, Pumpkin Spice, and Magic Potion.
The warning comes after the CPSC received at least a dozen reports of the candle “burning too close to the side of the container and the glass cracking.” The hazard resulted in one reported injury — a “minor cut” — and multiple reports of damage to nearby items, the agency said. The agency also received one report of a fire.
The agency says consumers should immediately stop using the candles and contact Star Soap Star Candle Prayer Candle for a full refund. Consumers can reach the company online or by phone. The phone number and hours of operation are available on the CPSC’s recall notice.
The company says that customers shouldn’t throw away the impacted items until after they receive their refunds, otherwise they will be ineligible.

Prayers for every thing made in Chinatown or a China owned packing plant, business in USA or any foreign country. China owns Mexico.
