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.
