The kerosene lamp burner’s threads can disengage, allowing the burner to disconnect from the base, posing burn and fire hazards to the user.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lamp burners and contact Crownplace Brands for a free replacement.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risk of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product-related incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products has contributed to a decline in the rate of injuries associated with consumer products over the past 50 years.
Federal law prohibits any person from selling products subject to a Commission ordered recall or a voluntary recall undertaken in consultation with the CPSC.
