Minneapolis, MN – In a precautionary move, retail giant Target has issued a recall for nearly five million Threshold Glass Jar Candles due to potential laceration and burn risks. The recall, announced on May 18, 2023, affects various sizes and scents of the popular candles, exclusively sold at Target stores.

The recall comes after reports of the candle’s glass jar cracking or breaking during use, posing hazards that could lead to lacerations and burns. Target has advised consumers who have purchased the affected candles to stop using them immediately and seek a refund.

The recalled Threshold Glass Jar Candles include the 5.5 ounce 1-Wick, 14 ounce 3-Wick, and 20 ounce 3-Wick varieties, available in multiple scents. To identify the affected candles, customers should check the bottom of the glass jars for the corresponding item numbers, which are listed in full on Target’s official recall notice.

With approximately 4.9 million units involved in the recall, Target is taking this action as a preventive measure to ensure customer safety. Although no injuries or incidents have been reported thus far, the company is committed to prioritizing consumer well-being.

Customers who have purchased the recalled candles are urged to bring them back to any Target store for a full refund. Target has also provided customer service contact information for any further inquiries related to the recall.
