According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Yankee Candle has announced a recall of luminous candles due to the fragility of the glass jars that come along with the candles. When the candles are lit, the glass jars can crack. This poses a laceration hazard thus increasing the risk of consumers suffering serious injuries when the glass jars crack.
