What you should do

Consumers should Immediately stop using the products above and either return them to the retailer where you bought them or dispose of them.

  • Use only certified electrical products.
  • Provincial and territorial electrical codes require that all electrical products sold must be certified, which means that they meet the applicable Canadian electrical safety standards.
  • Certified products can be identified by a recognized certification mark on the product.
  • The certification mark must be on the product itself, not just the packaging.
  • If you are unsure whether a product is certified, ask the retailer to show you the certification mark on the product before you buy it.

You can see some common Canadian certification marks you may find on your electrical products on this page.

Please note that the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act prohibits recalled products from being redistributed, sold or even given away in Canada.

Health Canada would like to remind Canadians to report any health or safety incidents related to the use of this product or any other consumer product or cosmetic by filling out the Consumer Product Incident Report Form.

This recall is also posted on the OECD Global Portal on Product Recalls website. You can visit this site for more information on other international consumer product recalls.
