Products covered by this policy

Any product that contains "strike anywhere" matches. Strike anywhere matches can be lit by friction against any suitable surface, and do not require a specially prepared striking strip. Safety matches, requiring a specially prepared striking surface (for example, strike on box or matchbooks), are not included in this policy.

Our policy for strike anywhere matches

As part of our ongoing efforts to provide the best possible customer experience and ensure the safety of our customers, we have decided to no longer allow the sale of these products on Amazon.
