Target Reissues Menorah Recall Over Fire Hazard Concerns

What to Know

  • The recall was previously announced in May, but Target is reminding customers because of the approaching holiday
  • The menorahs were sold in stores nationwide between October and December of last year
  • There have been more than a half-dozen reports of fires, but no injuries

With Hanukkah several weeks away, Target is reminding customers it has recalled thousands of menorahs because they post a fire hazard.

The clear acrylic menorahs, sold in Target stores nationwide from October 2015 through December 2015 for about $20, can melt when the candles burn, Target says. The company said it has received eight reports of the menorahs melting, including three reports of fire. No property damage or injuries were reported.

The 2,600 menorahs were originally recalled in May, but if customers still have them, they should toss them before the holiday or return them to Target for a full refund.
