Nearly 8,000 BBQ Ant Votive Candle Holders sold at Cracker Barrel stores have been recalled due to fire hazards, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
Why the product is being recalled: 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.
Description: The 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.
Where it was sold: The candles were sold exclusively at Cracker Barrel Old Country Store locations nationwide from May 2013 through June 2013 for about $6.
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.
