A line of candles that can ignite the surface of the wax, posing a fire hazard, is among this week's recalled consumer products.

Here's a more detailed look:

CANDLES

DETAILS: Four types of DD branded single-wick candles: Mason jars in 5- and 12- ounce sizes, decorative jars in 10- and 20-ounce sizes, 13-ounce coffee tins and 13-ounce jars with a holiday theme. The candles were sold in a variety of fragrances and colours at Hobby Lobby stores nationwide and online at HobbyLobby.com from June 2014 through October 2014. The SKU number is on a label on the underside of each container. Details on the specific candles being recalled, with their scents and SKU numbers, can be found at http://www.cpsc.gov/en/Recalls/2015/CoScentrix-Expands-Recall-of-DD-Brand-Candles1/

WHY: The candle's high flame can ignite the surface of the wax, posing a fire hazard.

INCIDENTS: One additional report of a candle's surface igniting and no additional reports of injury or property damage. In two previous recalls CoScentrix received a total of 31 reports of the candle's surface igniting, one report of injury and 10 reports of property damage.

HOW MANY: About 168,000. Previously, about 256,000 candles sold in jars and tins were recalled in November 2014 and about 126,000 candles sold in tins were recalled in April 2014.

CHILDREN'S Pyjamas

DETAILS: Star Ride Kids girl's pajama sets. The pajama sets consist of polar fleece pants with a bow and elastic at the waist and a jersey two-piece long-sleeve shirt. "Star Ride Taking It To The Next Level" is on a label in the waistband of each pair of pants. The logo "Star Ride" is printed on the inside back of the neck of each shirt. Some shirts have a hangtag on the wrist with the words "flame resistant sleepwear." They were sold at children's boutiques and department stores nationwide from August 2013 through November 2013.

Style reference number 5217 or 5250 is on a label in the side seam of each shirt. Style Reference No. 5217 includes black and white zebra printed pants paired with a blue top with a zebra printed heart on the centre front, or pink and black zebra printed pants paired with a white top with pink, heart-shaped peace signs and the word "Peace" printed on the centre front. Style Reference No. 5250 includes blue pants with the words "Happy, Love, Dreams" in a multicolored print paired with a white and blue top with the word "Hope" printed on the centre front, or pink pants with the words "Happy, Love, Dreams" in a multicolored print paired with a white and pink top with multicolored stars on the lower left side.

WHY: The pyjamas fail to meet federal flammability standards for children's sleepwear, posing a risk of burn injuries to children.

INCIDENTS: None reported.

HOW MANY: About 7,000.

FITNESS EQUIPMENT

DETAILS: SKLZ Recoil 360 All-Position Resistance Trainers, which is a leash-type device that provides resistance during exercise. The resistance trainer consists of a belt, an 8-foot flexible cord attachment leash, a safety handle and a storage bag. "SKLZ" followed by an arrow is printed on the belt. Users wear the belt, which is connected to the flexible cord. The safety handle, connected to the flexible cord, is held by a coach or partner to provide resistance while the user runs, jumps or shuffles. In lieu of a coach or partners, the safety handle can be connected to a sturdy stationary object like a fence or post. Belts with the arrow before the "SKLZ" are not included in this recall. They were sold at Academy LTD, Dick's Sporting Goods and other sporting goods and fitness stores; sporting goods and fitness catalogues; and online at SKLZ.com and Amazon.com from January 2013 through December 2014.

WHY: A weld on a ring on the resistance trainer's belt can break during use and cause the resistance trainer's flexible cord to quickly and unexpectedly retract and hit an exercise partner who is holding the other end.

INCIDENTS: Three reports of the weld on the resistance trainer breaking and resulting in serious injuries, including blunt trauma to a lower leg, a puncture wound and a laceration.

HOW MANY: About 52,000.
