"The article number can be found at the back of the box.

"This product has been sold in Big W stores nationally and online from September 18 to November 7.

"Big W are not aware of any incidents having occurred with this product.”

The items has been recalled because the wreath surrounding the candle holder could catch fire and remain alight longer than permitted by the Consumer Protection Notice under the permanent ban on combustible candle holders.

The hazard has been identified as "potential burns or fire causing property damage, serious injury or death”.

Big W has advised customers to immediately stop using the candle holder and return it to the nearest store for a full refund.

No proof of purchase will be required.
