About 2.2 million candles from Target have been recalled because they can crack while being used, and cause cuts and burns, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced. There are more than 60 varieties of the Threshold candles in 5.5- and 20-ounce sizes affected by the recall. The candles, which were sold from February 2020 through July 2023 for  $3 to $12, can be returned for a refund.

The notice said Target received 19 reports of the candles breaking while lit.
