    Friday's recall roundup includes a Ford recall for an issue with child safety locks, a votive candle recall and a chandelier recall.

    Ford is recalling just over 13,000 Explorer, Taurus and Lincoln MKS cars and SUVs because the child safety locks may not work on the rear doors.

    The recall affects 2013 model cars sold mainly in the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

    Ford says the safety locks can be turned off when the doors are opened or closed. That could allow a door to be opened with the inside door handle and possibly hurt a child. The company says no injuries have been reported from the problem.

    The recall covers cars and SUVs built from Nov. 29 to Dec. 12 of last year. Dealers will test the locks and replace door latches if needed at no cost to owners.

    More than 700,000 votive candles are being recalled because the flames can burn too high. The Swan Creek Candle votives were sold at Swan Creek Candles stores, small candle shops nationwide and online between January and November 2012. The candles were displayed loose in bins, came in dozens of scents and sold for about $2.

    And Bel Air Lighting is recalling some 20,000 Portfolio and Transglobe nine-light chandeliers because the mounting loop that holds the chandeliers to the ceiling can break, causing the chandelier to fall and potentially hit someone. Bel Air has received 18 reports of chandeliers falling from ceilings and some reports of property damage.

    The chandeliers have a two-tone antique bronze-colored metal frame with antique gold accents. there are six laps at the bottom and three at the top with champagne-frosted glass shades. They were sold at Lowe's and other department stores.
