Target has recalled 2.2 million Threshold candles as the glass jar can break, which can cause a laceration and burn hazard, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced. 

The candles come in 5.5-ounce one-wick and 20-ounce three-wick varieties. 

Target has received 19 reports of the jar breaking, which caused one minor injury. 

Target sold the candles from February 2020 through July 2023 for between $3 and $12. Dozens of different scents are included in the recall. A full list of products is available on the Consumer Product Safety Commission's website. 

Those with recalled candles are encouraged to stop using them and return them to Target for a refund. Consumers can also contact Target to receive a prepaid return label to return the candles by mail.
