Thousands of candles are being recalled in Canada due to fire and burn hazards.

In an alert, Health Canada said the recall involves the USA-manufactured Revive 3-wick soy candle in a glass jar with white wax, topped with a decorative metal lid embossed with the Melaleuca leaf and drop.

Two scents were sold:

  • Revive 3-Wick Soy Candle – Winter Cedar, Melaleuca SKU Number 1010030041
  • Revive 3-Wick Soy Candle – Warm Spiced Latte, Melaleuca SKU Number 1010030040

“The candle’s high flames can ignite the surface of the wax, posing fire and burn hazards,” Health Canada states.

Approximately 3,103 units of the affected product were sold in Canada between November and December of last year.

Anyone who has recently bought or received the affected products “should immediately stop using the recalled product, cut all three wicks as short as possible, and then dispose of the candles in their household trash.”

Despite the recall, the company noted that as of December 29, it had received no reports of incident or injury in Canada.
