Health Canada Recalled Thousands of Candles for Burning the Wrong Way

Candles are meant to burn, but Health Canada has recalled several Revive-brand candles for doing it the wrong way.

The recall affects certain Revive scented three-wick soy candles, which come in glass jars with decorative metal lids.

The “Winter Cedar” and “Warm Spiced Latte” candles were found to be extra flammable, according to Health Canada’s warning issued on Tuesday.

“The candle’s high flames can ignite the surface of the wax, posing fire and burn hazards,” the recall notice says.

According to US-based producer Melaleuca, the recall affects 3,303 candles sold in November and December of last year.

The affected products are:

  • Revive 3-Wick Soy Candle – Winter Cedar, Melaleuca SKU Number 1010030041
  • Revive 3-Wick Soy Candle – Warm Spiced Latte, Melaleuca SKU Number 1010030040

Health Canada says anyone with one of these candles at home should stop using it immediately. Cut all three wicks as short as possible, then throw the candles in the trash.

Consumers can contact Melaleuca Canada toll-free at 1-800-742-8094 for more information. Hours of operation are from 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday.

So far no one has been injured by these candles.
