Candle-makers announce recall story image

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - The makers of DD brand tin candles say there is an increased fire hazard from some of their candles.

The company is recalling 126,000, warning the flame can grow too high, igniting the surface of the wax and coating on the tin container.

They were sold exclusively at Hobby Lobby stores nationwide and online, from June through July of this year.

There have been reports of at least one minor fire that lead to property damage, but no injuries.

If you have a DD brand candle that you got from Hobby Lobby, stop using it right away.

Customers with receipts should contact Hobby Lobby for refunds.
