Hold the Pumpkin Spice! 😲 Target’s 2.2 Million Candle Recall Leaves Scents and Sensibility in Flames 🔥
TL:DR; Target’s up to their waxy ways again, recalling 2.2 million Threshold-branded glass jar candles. Lacerations and burns aren’t just the hot topics in romance novels anymore! These candles, with scents from frosted vanilla cupcake to blue agave & cactus, may break during use, so check your stash. Not the first time with these candles, either – Target’s done this dance before. 😅
Get Ready for the Burn, Baby, Burn 🕯️
New York — You know what’s more dangerous than playing with fire? Apparently, enjoying a romantic evening with Threshold’s glass jar candles. That’s right, lovers of frosted vanilla cupcake, rose petal & lotus, and the oh-so-trendy pumpkin spice, you might want to rethink your next bath time. 🛁 Target is recalling 2.2 million candles, and it’s not because they’re too hot to handle…well, actually, they are! 🤕
According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, the jars can break during use. Just imagine, one minute you’re enjoying that warm pumpkin spice glow, the next you’re calling 911. I mean, they say love hurts, but this is ridiculous! 😖 Target has already received 19 reports of candle jars going rogue and one minor injury.
So, what’s up with these candles, really? Are they just too sassy for their own good? Why is this happening again? 🤔
Return of the Wax: The Sequel 🎬
If you’re thinking, “Wait, I’ve heard this before,” well, you’re not wrong! Threshold candles were recalled back in May, with Target receiving 137 reports of the candle jars getting a little too explosive for comfort and six injuries. Looks like someone didn’t learn their lesson. Or did they? 🧐
And if you think Target’s the only one facing the heat, think again. Other retailers, including Walmart, have also played the recall game this year. Perhaps candles are going through a rebellious phase? It’s time to dive deeper and figure out what’s really going on here.
Protect Yo’ Self! 🛑
If you have these tantalizing scented ticking time-bombs, the advice is to “immediately stop using” them. Return those bad boys to any Target store or by mail for a full refund. You can find the details on the CPSC website and Target’s recall page.
Sold from February 2020 through July 2023, and ranging from $3 to $12, these candles may have made it into many homes. Could yours be one of them? 😱
Wax On, Wax Off 🕊️
So here’s the real question: Is the fault in the stars or the candles? Are we dealing with a conspiracy of glass jars or just bad luck in the candle world? What does this mean for the future of mood lighting? Are LED candles the answer? And most importantly, when will pumpkin spice ever catch a break? 🎃
This story leaves us with more questions than answers, including whether or not we can ever trust a scented candle again. So what’s your take? Will you be returning your candles or living on the edge? And how will this affect your autumn evenings? Let’s keep the conversation burning, shall we? 🤔💬
