Be careful when selecting Christmas lights

(Prague, October 27, 2015) Within continuous monitoring of the inner market, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority detected a product which poses serious risk of injury by electric current due to construction defects of its electric unit’s cord plug and cover. Christmas chain with 100 bulbs and light effects is also equipped with deceitful information about the way of the product’s use. The Czech version states that the product is suitable for both outdoor and indoor use, but a visible text INDOOR is displayed on the upper part of the packaging. Information about individual regimes of light is provided only in English.

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
