Millions of candles recalled

Posted:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

More than 7 million candles are being recalled because of concerns the cup holding the candle could melt or catch fire.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the tea lights were sold under the Chesapeake Bay Candle and Modern Light brand names.  They were sold at Home Goods, Target, Wegmans and other stores nationwide between July 2009 and February 2011.

The CPSC says the candles have a clear plastic cup that can melt or ignite, posing a fire and burn hazard.  But so far, no injuries or property damage have been reported.

Consumers can call the company at 800-331-8339 for more information or click here
