Ho, Ho...uh, oh. Importer Hallmark Cards Inc. of Kansas City announced on Tuesday that a batch of approximately 7,000 snowman snow globes are being recalled due to posing a potential fire hazard. The transparent glass globes are believed to intensify sunlight that passes through the glass, causing objects in the globe's light path to catch on fire. So far, Hallmark has received two reports of these snow globes causing surrounding objects to ignite.

The snow globes were sold at various national Hallmark Gold Crown stores in October and November of 2008. They can be returned for a full refund. For more information, call 800-425-5627.
