The two-and-a-half-inch-tall blue candles’ high flames can cause the glass container to break, sparking fire and burn hazards, according to the CPSC recall notice. In some cases, the surface wax has caught on fire too, posing another serious risk of spreading the flames.

Consumers are urged not to light the candles and to call Dollar Tree for a refund at 1-800-876-8697.

More information about the recall is available on Dollar Tree’s website.
