Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall affects certain John Snowball, Esq., style Tealight Holders sold by the Victorian Trading Company.

The recalled Tealight Holder is a snowball-shaped character with a wire monocle on his right eye, a cigar in his mouth and a black top hat with a yellow band above the brim on his head. The Tealight Holders measure approximately 4.5″ by 4.5″ by 6″. There is a hole in the back of each Holder to allow entry of a tea light candle into the Holder. Clear stickers with the Victorian Trading Company logo are affixed to the bottom of each Tealight Holder.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s packaging, design and retail presentation.

According to the CPSC, the diameter of the hole in the character’s top hat is too small. This defect creates a situation that is insufficient to properly vent the Tealight when burning and, in turn, can allow heat to build up and create cracks in the surface, posing a fire hazard.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Tealight Holders, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
