The Yankee Candle Company is recalling around 31,000 candles due to laceration hazardous. The candles are part of the Luminous Collection and are square glass that contains three wicks and can crack when the candle is lit. They are approximately 4 inches wide by 5 inches wide, and six different scents are being recalled. The company reported that they have received 16 reports of the jars cracking, but no injuries have been sustained yet. The recalled candles were sold at Yankee Candle stores and on their website from September 2016 through November 2016. The company suggests consumers should immediately stop using the candles and contact the company directly to receive a full refund.
