Illinois Candle Fans: Walmart Recalls 1.2 Million For Fire Hazard
If your house is anything like mine, it's safe to assume that you've got at least one candle-lover living there. At our place, it's my daughter Molly. You never get used to your kid running around with a stick-lighter in their hands...even when they're 25 years old.
Molly, like so many others, started out small with votive candles, then the fascination and addiction set in. Before I knew it, there were two-wick candles appearing on the table, then she turned to the hard stuff: 3-wick, heavily scented jar candles.
Now, I have to go home and try to pry them out of her hands to see if any of our candles are on the The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission's announced recall list of more than 1.2 million candles sold exclusively at Walmart last fall.
