Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores recalling votive candle holder

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of the thousands of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products – such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals – contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years. Companies often cooperate with the commission in addressing issues of safety concerns with their products.

Consumers should stop using this product unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

The following items have been added to the commission’s latest recall notice:

Votive Candle Holder-Cracker Barrel-recalledCracker Barrel Old Country Store is recalling the BBQ Ant Votive Candle Holder due to fire and burn hazards. The decorative ant’s arms, used to hold up the votive cup, can break. If this happens, a lit candle can tip over or fall out, posing fire and burn hazards. The candle holders were sold exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store locations nationwide from May 2013  through June 2013 for about $6.

This recall involves candle holders designed to resemble a large ant.  The black metal candle holders are 6 ½-inches tall and were sold as either a male or female. The male ant has a polka dot bow tie and the female has a white pearl necklace. Both ants hold up a clear glass votive cup.  The words “Backyard BBQ” and “Glass Votive Holder” are printed on the front of the packaging. SKU number 426154 can be found on the underside of the packaging.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled votive candle holders and return them to any Cracker Barrel Old Country Store location or mail to Mercuries Asia USA, Ltd., 1501 Gary Street, Bethlehem, PA  18018 for a full refund, including shipping.
