    31K Yankee Candles Recalled Over Glass Cracking
    U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

    Thousands of glass candle jars made by Yankee Candles are at risk of cracking ahead of the holiday season, prompting a major recall of the product.

    The Yankee Candle Company is recalling about 31,000 candles from its Luminous Candle Collection. The makers say the square glass jars can crack when the candle is lit, posing an injury hazard, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, which posted the recall Thursday.

    The company has received 16 complaints of cracking so far, but no reports of injuries.

    The candles have three wicks and were sold at Yankee Candle stores and on the company's website between September 2016 and November 2016. They can be exchanged for a full refund.

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.
