The “Winter Cedar” and “Warm Spiced Latte” candles were found to be extra flammable, according to Health Canada’s warning issued on Tuesday.

“The candle’s high flames can ignite the surface of the wax, posing fire and burn hazards,” the recall notice says.

The recall affects 3,103 candles sold in November and December of last year, according to the U.S.-based manufacturer Melaleuca.
