Snow globes that pose fire hazard recalled

Posted:

WASHINGTON (KWWL) - Approximately 7,000 snowman snow globes are being recalled for posing a fire hazard.

The transparent globes can magnify the intensity of sunlight passing through the glass, causing nearby objects to catch on fire.

Importer Hallmark Cards of Kansas City has received two reports of these Chinese-made globes causing surrounding objects to ignite.

The snowmen globes were sold at Hallmark Gold Crown stores around the country in October and November.
