If a recent Target run included getting candles for you and someone in your family, you need to be aware of a recall that Target Stores issued on Thursday, May 18.

The recall was issued after the company received 137 reports of the candle jars breaking or cracking during use. Six injuries, including lacerations and severe burns, have been reported by consumers so far.

The recall in question involves some 4.9 million Threshold-branded glass jar candles, which Target sold exclusively nationwide, and at Target.com, in multiple sizes and various scents. Prices of the recalled Threshold candles ranged between $3 and $20.

The candles included in the recall were sold from August 2019 through March 2023 with scents that included water mint and eucalyptus, apple blossom and breeze, and warm cider and cinnamon, among others.
