Reminder to unplug recalled Christmas lights

The Electrical Safety Office (ESO) has warned consumers who purchased Christmas lights in the past two months to check whether the lights are covered by a safety recall.

“Christmas lights suppliers have voluntarily recalled numerous Christmas lights that pose a risk of an electric shock or potential fire hazard,” said Gerard Poynting, Principal Electrical Safety Inspector

“In some cases, the products may have exposed wiring, which could cause an electric shock or be a fire hazard.”

He said the product recalls related to Christmas lights purchased from Woolworths Limited, Masters Home Improvement and Big W.

“Full details of the affected products can be found at www.electricalsafety.qld.gov.au, or by calling the Electrical Safety Infoline on 1300 362 320.

“Consumers can check the item numbers on their lights against the list on the ESO website.

“Anyone who has purchased the recalled products should unplug them immediately and return them to the store where they bought them.”

The current recalls include ALL of the following lights:
