The target is reported to require approximately 5 million threshold lumens after severe burns

WASHINGTON — Target is recalling nearly 5 million candles due to snagging and burning risks, according to a notice Thursday from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The goal is to recall approximately 5 million Threshold glass candles in multiple sizes and different scents over tearing and burn hazards.

The recall affects about 4.9 million Threshold-branded glass candles sold in multiple sizes and different scents — including water mint, eucalyptus, apple blossom, breeze, warm apple cider, cinnamon, and more.

According to a CPSC notification, Target has received 137 reports of sill candle jars breaking or cracking during use. Six injuries were reported – including serious cuts and burns.

Thursday’s notice said consumers who have Threshold products withdrawn should “immediately stop using them.” Candles may be returned to any Target store or by mail for a full refund.

Details of the size, scent, and item numbers of candles are listed on the CPSC website and target recall page.

The recalled Threshold products were sold exclusively at Target stores and on the retailer’s website in Minneapolis from August 2019 through March 2023. Sale prices range from $3 to $20, the CPSC said.

“Target is committed to providing our guests with high-quality, safe products,” Target spokesperson Joe Unger said in a statement to The Associated Press, urging customers who own “any recalled items” to return them for a full refund.
