A candle supply company in northern Virginia has sold a candle tin in the state to a competitor, according to state officials.
The state Department of Revenue says it found a supplier for the state’s largest commercial distributor of decorative candles in Virginia.
It did not say who purchased the candle tin.
A spokeswoman for Virginias Lighting said it did not have any immediate comment.
The company is a subsidiary of the state-owned company, Virginias Corporation.
The department has not determined if the vendor sold the product to the company.
It is the first time the company has sold candle tins to a rival company.
