SOUTH DEERFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — The Consumer Product Safety Commission says that Yankee Candle is recalling about 15,000 candle rings that were sold in the United States.

The ring, which is made up of synthetic foliage, pinecones, and red berries, is reportedly flammable and poses a fire hazard.

The CPSC adds that no injuries or incidents have been recovered.

It measures about nine to ten inches in diameter and has an opening of about 4 inches.

The rings were sold at Hallmark and Yankee Candle stores across the country, as well as through YankeeCandle.com and Yankee Candle catalogs from September 2013 through October 2013.

The ring retailed for between $8 and $10, and has a UPC code of 8-86860-02558-8 or 8-86860-06357-3

Customers that may have the item should immediately stop using them and return it to the nearest Yankee Candle store for a refund, or call Yankee Candle at (877) 417-2230 Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET for instructions on obtaining a refund.
