Instead of storing those Christmas decorations for safe keeping, you may want to throw them out instead. That's because some decorations are making this month's Recall Round-Up.
Home Trends is recalling several of its holiday candle gift sets, deigned with a snow-house, snow-men and snow-flakes. Paint on the exterior surface of the candle is flammable and is a potential fire hazard. The candles were sold at Wal-Mart from September through November for about $10. Return to the candles to Wal-Mart for a refund.
