A popular Halloween item sold in Aldi stores across Ireland in recent weeks has been urgently recalled over fire hazard fears.
The Competition and Consumer Protection Commission has issued an alert for the ‘Kirkton House Pumpkin Wax Melt Burner’, which is a candleholder. The affected products were manufactured in 2022, and more than 3,200 of the Halloween decorations have been bought in Aldi shops across Ireland in recent weeks.
A spokesperson for the CCPC said: "The risk associated with the product is that it poses a fire hazard. The use of certain lit candles in the product leads to flames exiting the front opening of the burner, igniting the over-heated molten wax."
The affected brand is Kirkton House, and the type/number of model is Pumpkin Variant. The barcode is 4088600518978.
Customers are being told to stop using the product and return it to their nearest Aldi store in Ireland for a full refund. Customers who purchased these products can contact Aldi’s customer service team on 1800 991 828.
