(WBNG Binghamton) Pier 1 Imports has recalled Golden tea lights sold with ornament tea light holders.

About 370,000 tea lights were sold in United States and another 30,000 tea lights were sold in Canada.

The product was sold at Pier 1 Imports between September 2010 and January of 2011 for between $2 and $8.

The flame from the tea lights can burn with a high flame, posing a fire hazard.

Four reports of high flames have already been made.

In one of the incidents, the consumer suffered a minor burn.

This recall involves all tea lights in golden tin cups sold in sets of five with either the Red Ornament Tea Light Holder (SKU 2473959) or the White Ornament Tea Light Holder (SKU 2473961).

The SKU number is found on the packaging.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled tea lights and return them to their nearest Pier 1 Imports store to receive new tea lights.
