About 117,000 units were sold at Dollar Tree, Dollar Bill$, Deal$ and Dollar Tree Deal$ stores nationwide from December 2010 through April 2011 for about $1.

The glass votive candle holders can shatter while in use, posing a fire and laceration hazard to consumers.

This recall involves frosted or clear glass votive candle holders with French vanilla scented candles.

The votive candle holders are 2 1/2 inches tall.

Consumers should immediately stop using the candle holders and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund.
