NEW YORK (MainStreet) — Pier 1 Imports recalled 400,000 tea lights in the U.S. and Canada after several customers complained that flames from the candles sparked too high, posing a fire hazard.

The majority of these tea lights were sold in the U.S., with about 370,000 lights offered in Pier 1 stores throughout the country during the previous five months. The golden tea lights were sold in sets of five and came with an ornament holder.

Since these particular tea lights hit shelves in September, Pier 1 says four consumers have complained about high flames, including one customer who reportedly received a minor burn as a result.

This isn’t the first time Pier 1 has recalled its tea lights. Back in the beginning of 2010, the company recalled special glitter tea lights after three customers complained of receiving glitter burns.

TheStreet Recommends

Consumers who have purchased the golden tea lights recalled this week are advised to stop using them and return the lights to the nearest Pier 1 store, where they can be exchanged for a new set of tea lights instead.
