Recalls This Week: Candle Holders, Travel Trunks

By The Associated Press

A line of travel trunks with handles that pose a laceration hazard were among this week's recalled consumer products. Votive candle holders with arms that can break, resulting in a tipped candle and a fire hazard, were also recalled.

Here's a more detailed look:


DETAILS: Journey Girl Travel Trunks, used to carry 18-inch-tall toy dolls. The 21-inch-tall trunks are purple with a blue pattern and a blue metal handle. The trunks were sold with three clothes hangers and two pull-out drawers for storage. Travel trunks included in the recall have UPC # 48970277965070 and model number 5F5F79E. The model number is printed on the bottom of the travel trunk next to the UPC code. They were sold at Toys R Us stores from October 2012 through February 2013.

WHY: The blue metal handle on the trunk can be sharp, posing a laceration hazard to the user.

INCIDENTS: Six reports involving the handle, including one report of a consumer who received stitches.

HOW MANY: About 12,650.

DETAILS: BBQ Ant Votive Candle Holders designed to resemble a large ant. The words "Backyard BBQ" and "Glass Votive Holder" are printed on the front of the packaging. SKU number 426154 can be found on the underside of the packaging. They were sold exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store locations nationwide from May 2013 through June 2013.

WHY: The decorative ant's arms, used to hold up the votive cup, can break. If this happens, a lit candle can tip over or fall out, posing fire and burn hazards.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 7,900.
