On their Jewish Heritage Night on Dec. 14, the Golden State Warriors gave away nearly 1,800 faulty menorahs with basketball-shaped candleholders. It was intended as a reverential Warriors-Chanukah tie-in. The gold-and-yellow menorahs even featured a basketball-shaped shamash candle atop a net.
Unfortunately, life isn’t a game of NBA Jam ’95. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, those candleholders are a risk to melt when exposed to heat, which is the opposite of what a candleholder is designed to do. Seeing how, fire is one of our planet’s purest producers of heat, the CPSC is recalling those menorahs.
Reportedly, the CPSC received a report of a fiery bouncing candle once the glue melted. That is both terrifying and worthy of a viral video. Chanukah ended over two months ago, but better late than never.
