Candle Lighters by Zippo Manufacturing Co. Recalled Due to Burn Hazard

Zippo Slatkin & Co. Candle Lighters manufactured by Zippo Manufacturing Company (and sold nationwide by Bath and Body Works and White Barn Candle Stores) have been recalled, because the lighters can produce an excessive flame when adjusted to its maximum setting posting a burn hazard to the consumer. This recall involves the Zippo Slatkin & Co. candle lighters with date codes G09 or H09. The lighters are finished in high-polish chrome or white with a chrome nozzle. The lighter uses refillable butane fuel and measures 6.5 inches long and 1 inch wide. The date code is embossed on the black adjuster knob located on the end of the lighter (opposite to the nozzle). “Slatkin & Co.” and “Zippo” are printed on the packaging. “Zippo” is also embossed on the product. Consumers should immediately discontinue using this product and contact Zippo for information on returning the black adjuster knob and receiving a free replacement Zippo candle lighter. For additional information, please contact Zippo at 800.320.7490 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s website at
