The ceramic tealight warmers are white with a green glass dish or brown with an orange glass dish for the wax cubes. "Essenza" is printed on the front of the packaging and Costco item number #852473 is printed on the sides of the packaging.

The tealights in the warmers can burn with an erratic or high flame, posing fire and burn hazards. Olympic Mountain Products has received 22 reports of tealights with erratic or high flames, including two minor burn injuries to consumers and one incident resulting in minor property damage.

About 209,000 sets are affected in the U.S. Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the recalled tealight wax warmer sets and return them to Costco for a refund.

Subaru is recalling about 199,000 cars and SUVs for a second time to fix rusty brakelines that can leak fluid and cause longer stopping distances.

The recall covers the 2009 through 2013 Forester, 2008 through 2011 Impreza, and the 2008 through 2014 WRX and WRX-STI models. It affects vehicles in 20 U.S. cold-weather states and Washington, D.C., where salt is used to clear roads.

Subaru said salty water can splash on the brake lines through a gap in the fuel tank protector. That can cause rust and leaks. A recall from last year for the same problem didn't work due to incomplete repair instructions to dealers.

Dealers will apply a corrosion-fighting wax at no cost to owners. The recall affects vehicles now registered or originally sold in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Washington, D.C.

Subaru says drivers will be alerted to brakeline leaks by a light on the instrument panel. Brakes will to work even if there's a leak, but drivers may need to push the pedal harder.
