I purchased 2 candle sets at walmart on black friday. One for myself, and one as a gift. When I went to use the one I purchased, I lit the small candle. It only burned about an hour when the glass shattered, and wax and glass went everywhere. I was struck with slivers of glass on my face as well as hot wax. These candles are dangerous, and can cause injury. Had I not been in the same room, I have no doubt my house would have caught on fire. Walmart should not be allowed to sell unsafe candles, and risk the safety of its customers.
