WASHINGTON (AP) – Target is recalling almost 5 million candles over laceration and burn hazards, according to a Thursday notice from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recall impacts Threshold-branded glass jar candles in multiple sizes and various scents. According to the CPSC, Target received 137 reports of the Threshold candles’ jars breaking or cracking during use.

Six injuries – which included lacerations and severe burns – were reported. Consumers with the recalled Threshold products should “should immediately stop using” them, Thursday’s notice said.

The candles can be returned to any Target store or by mail for a full refund.
