“The candle holders can catch on fire if they come in contact with the candle’s flame, posing a fire hazard,” the Consumer Product Safety Commission website stated.

The recall includes two specific products: the Sofia Taper Candle Holder and the Swirled Taper Candle Holder. Both products were manufactured in China, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. They were sold online from February 2020 through October 2020.
