The company has received numerous reports of candles with high or volatile flame behavior, including four reports of minor burns, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement.
Consumers were advised to stop using the candles and return them to Swan Creek Candle Company for a full refund or a replacement poured votive candle in a votive glass.
A votive candle is usually a short, stout candle that is used symbolically in conjunction with someone making a vow or a pledge.
The candles under recall were sold at Swan Creek outlets in Michigan, Florida and Ohio for about $2. They were sold from January 2012 through November 2012.
