Target re-announced its May 2016 recall of 2,600 acrylic Hanukkah menorahs. The recall is due to the menorahs melting when the candles are burning, which of course poses a fire hazard.
The company has received eight reports of the product melting, including three reports of fire, though no property damage or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves clear acrylic Hanukkah menorahs in a pyramid design that are 10.5 inches long, 1.2 inches wide and 2.3 inches high. Model number 240-14-0169 and bar code can be found on a round white label on the side of the menorah.
The menorahs were sold exclusively at Target stores nationwide from October 2015, through December 2015, for about $20.
We suggest that all consumers immediately stop using the recalled menorahs and return them to Target for a full refund.
