TESCO 'TRANQUILITY' FRAGRANCED GEL CANDLE
TESCO 'VITALITY' FRAGRANCED GEL CANDLE

Tesco has identified a problem with the above two products, which were on sale in Tesco stores from October 1997 to January 1998. A small number may flare under certain circumstances.

The candles are in the form of a green or blue gel in a 9cm (3.5 inch) high clear glass jar.

Customers who have purchased either of these products or who have been given them as presents are requested to return them to any Tesco store where a full refund will be given.

Tesco apologises for the inconvenience this may cause and assures customers of our care and commitment to the highest standards of safety and quality at all times.
