Target has reissued a recall of thousands of menorahs because they tend to melt when candles burn, posing a fire hazard, the company said.

The clear acrylic menorahs, which were sold nationwide from Oct. 2015 to Dec. 2015, were initially recalled in May. But with Hanukkah approaching in the coming weeks, Target decided to remind customers the menorahs can melt.

Target has so far received eight reports of melted menorahs, and there were three reports of fires. No property damage or injuries have been reported, the company said.

Although the 2,600 menorahs sold were recalled in May, Target warned that people who still own them should immediately stop using them and return them to the store for a full refund.
