The spacing of the holes in a concentrated pattern allows the holder to heat-up. This can cause the tealights to burn unexpectedly fast and with a higher flame height than normal, posing a fire hazard. Pier 1 Imports has received seven reports.
The Candle Holder measures 7" x 7" and has a silver metallic top with a black base. It has nine square openings for use with tealight candles. The product's SKU number 2174941 can be located on the bottom of the base.
They were sold by Pier 1 Imports stores nationwide from June 2007 through December 2007 for between $6 and $25. Consumers should stop using the tealight holder immediately and return it to any Pier 1 Imports store for a refund of the purchase price or a store credit.
