CSA Group Alerts Consumers That Seasonal Lights Manufactured by Zhejiang Kaifu Lamp Co. Ltd. Do Not Meet Canadian Standards

Date: December 14, 2015
Location: Global United States

CSA Group, a leading global provider of product testing and certification services and standards development, is notifying consumers, regulators and retailers of indoor and outdoor decorative lighting strings made by Zhejiang Kaifu Lamp Co. Ltd. may pose a risk of fire or shock hazard.

CSA Group conducted an independent investigation and determined that the products do not meet CSA standards and the CSA certification mark was misused. CSA Group takes the misuse of its marks very seriously and has cancelled the certification for Zhejiang Kaifu Lamp Co. Ltd. and removed their certification records from the Certified Product Listings on CSA Goup’s website: www.csagroup.org.

In addition, consumers are encouraged to check the Recall and Safety Alerts Database on the Healthy Canadians website for product recall alerts issued by Health Canada and follow the directions for all products under a recall notice.

Anyone with a safety concern about a CSA Group certified product is urged to send the details to: crush.counterfeiting@csagroup.org.
