The company is recalling the Luminous Collection candles.

They received feedback from customers that when the candle is lit, the glass jar may crack, posing a possible laceration hazard.   The Consumer Product Safety Commission said 16 reports have been received, but no injuries have been reported. The recall affects about 31,000 units, according to the CPSC.

The company said, “At Yankee Candle we pride ourselves on having the highest standards of quality. Out of an abundance of caution and a firm commitment to safety, we have decided to request the immediate return of all Luminous Collection candles.”

Yankee Candle said the issue is limited to certain types of candles, which are on the list below. They were sold from September 2016 through November 2016 for about $35.
