On January 14, 2010, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Heath Canada, and Pier 1 Imports announced a voluntary recall of approximately 67,000 Ceramic Santa Tea Light Holders, due to a fire hazard.
The recall affects Pier 1 Imports’ red and white Santa Tea Light Holder that is designed in the image of Santa Claus. The holder is 7.5 inches tall and 3.5 inches wide with an opening in the back for a tea light candle. The SKU number 2417274 is printed on the bottom of the product.
Pier 1 Imports has received three reports of the tea light holders catching on fire. The defective products were sold at Pier 1 Imports stores in the U.S. and Canada from September 2009 through December 2009.
Customers are urged to stop using the recalled holders immediately and return the products to any Pier 1 Imports store for a full refund.
