Candles are supposed to burn, not torch. This is exactly why “Avant Yarde” is recalling three styles of outdoor citronella candles. These candles burn so hot, the wick sets fire to the wax, thus, transforming these outdoor candles into outdoor torches. The company is voluntarily recalling the product, after receiving reports of consumers suffering from burns.
