During the holiday season, many of us buy products without really thinking twice. During the rush of Christmas shopping, there’s no time to stop and think about whether a product might be dangerous or not. This holiday season, you should at least do your best to avoid buying these dangerous products. If they make their way under the Christmas tree this year, your family members could suffer serious injuries.
Dangerous Candles Recalled Due to Fire Hazards
In many ways, a candle is the perfect, affordable gift for almost anyone on your list. But not if this candle poses a fire hazard to your loved ones. On December 15th, it was reported that over 30,000 candles manufactured by the company “Good Matters” had been recalled. These candles apparently burned at “higher than usual temperatures,” posing a serious fire hazard for users. According to some reports, the candle jar can break at these high temperatures, potentially allowing fires to spread. Not only that, but the shattering glass also has the potential to cause lacerations. At least one person has been burned by these candles. The candles were sold at places like HomeGoods, Tuesday Morning, and Amazon.

Jacuzzi and Sundance Spas Recalled for Burn Hazard
