Hallmark Recalls 7,000 Fire Hazard Snow Globes
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. An expected extra touch of magic in Hallmark's snow globes this holiday season. When exposed to the sun, the snowmen have the power to ignite nearby combustible materials. Seems Frosty's tummy was working as a hazardous magnifying glass. At a $100 a piece, he's no cheap toy, and so Hallmark has recalled some 7,000 globes across the country. So far, there have been two reports of fire, but lucky for Frosty no injuries. It's Morning Edition.
