Various “Holiday Collection” Seasonal Lights
This recall involves various Holiday Collection Christmas Lights. The Canadian Tire SKU number can be found on the box or receipt and by the CSA file numbers 224823 which can usually be found on the manufacturer's product identification label, which is a tag affixed to the wire of the light string. These CSA file numbers are not embossed on the plug of the light string; the numbers found on the plug relate only to that specific plug component and are not part of this recall.
