Cracker Barrel Recalling Some Candle Holders

September 26, 2013

Cracker Barrel is recalling nearly 8,000 BBQ ant votive candle holders because they can break and create a fire hazard or burn someone.

The company said Wednesday that the decorative ant’s arms that hold up a votive cup can break. If a lit candle is in the cup at the time, it can tip over or fall out. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The black metal candle holders are 6 1/2-inches tall. The words “Backyard BBQ” and “Glass Votive Holder” are printed on the front of the package. SKU number 426154 can be found on the bottom of the packaging.

The candle holders were sold at Cracker Barrel stores nationwide from May through June for about $6.

Consumers should immediately stop using the product. They can be returned to any Cracker Barrel store, or consumers can call Mercuries Asia at (800) 828-9316 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit to get a refund.

Shares of Cracker Barrel Old Country Store Inc. added 59 cents to $102.67 in morning trading.
