Over 142,000 votive candles sold exclusively at Dollar Tree stores across Utica and Rome are recalled due to a fire and burn hazard.

Consumers should immediately stop using the candle and contact Dollar Tree for a full refund. There have been several reports of the flame height reached above the glass, causing the glass to break. Thankfully, there were no injuries. The press release states:
