A warning from Health Canada last week that certain holiday lights may post serious safety risks (click here for updated list of products) was issued after testing where Health Canada identified several risks that include overheating, risk of fire and/or electric shock .
Canadian Tire has recalled their “Holiday Collection” Christmas lights.
Canadian Tire says consumers with any of the products in this list should stop using them immediately and return them to a Canadian Tire location for a full refund.
Other retailers such as Walmart, Michaels, Dollarama, Loblaws and others have also issued recalls on seasonal lights affected by this recall so check the link above to make sure any lights you’ve bought this year are not on the list.
Keep you home and family safe this holiday season.
