TORONTO – Canadian Tire is expanding a recall of Christmas lights sold under the Holiday Collection brand for safety reasons.
It says the lights should not be used and can be returned to Canadian Tire stores for a refund.
Health Canada says it has received one report from a consumer who received a minor electric shock from the coloured lights.
The agency also says the affected lights may pose a fire hazard.
The recall includes another 33 types of Holiday Collection lights sold by Canadian Tire after Aug. 1, in addition to 12 types identified two weeks ago. A complete list is on Health Canada’s website healthycanadians.gc.ca.
The recall does not include Noma lights — which are another brand carried by the national retailer.
