WASHINGTON (AP) - Talk about going from cold to hot. Approximately 7,000 snowman snow globes are being recalled for posing a fire hazard.
The transparent globes at the center of these snowman-shaped knickknacks can magnify the intensity of sunlight passing through the glass, causing nearby objects to catch on fire.
Importer Hallmark Cards of Kansas City has received two reports of these Chinese-made globes causing surrounding objects to ignite.
The snowmen globes were sold at Hallmark Gold Crown stores around the country in October and November. They can be returned for a full refund.
For more information, consumers can call 800-425-5627.

By Dorene Internicola NEW YORK (Reuters) - Women's fitness has come a long way since skinny defined the ideal body and a muscled arm was cause for alarm. From resistance training to power workouts such as barbell squats, medicine ball throws and kettlebell swings, a rigorous regime has become more popular with women. "We want women who want to turn it up a little bit," said Dean Hodgkin, a fitness writer and martial artist who co-authored the book "Better Body Workouts for Women" with fitness consultant and nutritionist Caroline Pearce. "We specifically included heavy resistance and weight training formats because if women don't train heavy, they'll miss the opportunity to gain strength," said Hodgkin, who is based in Leicestershire, England.
