Major Retailer Recalls Christmas Candle Holder Over Fire Fears

Christmas candles

BIG W is recalling its Christmas Wreath Candle Holder.

The store advises that although there haven't been any actual problems reported, there is a chance the wreath surrounding the candle holder could catch fire and remain alight longer than permitted.

That means the candle holders do have the potential to cause burns, serious injury or death or damage to property.

The Christmas Wreath Candle Holder comes in two colours: Pink and Gold Article number 689023 and Green and Silver Article number 689054. The article number can be found on the back of the box.

This product has been sold in BIG W stores nationally and online from 18 September 2018 to 7 November 2018.

Customers should immediately cease using the product and return it to any BIG W store for a full refund. No proof of purchase is required.

BIG W apologises to its customers for any inconvenience caused by this recall.
