    Jumbo snow globes + sunlight = consumer hazard

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) Some 7,000 jumbo-sized snow globes were recalled by Hallmark Cards Inc. because the holiday decorations can act as a magnifying glass when exposed to sunlight and ignite nearby combustible materials, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said on Tuesday.

    Consumers who bought the snow globes, which measure 11 by 12 by 17 inches (28 by 30 by 43cm), should immediately remove them from exposure to sunlight and return to a Hallmark Gold Crown store for a full refund.

    Details about the recall were posted at the government agency's web site at: http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml09/09073.html.

    Do hope people spread the word around about this recall as there's potential for serious damage. Have to wonder why no one gave thought to this during development so proper materials were used.

    WOw, I don't have this one, but, I have three of the smaller ones -none near a window, but, I never thought of the possibility. They just got put up, the first decorations to be taken down.

    All kinds of hugs!
