Dangerous light chains detected in Pilsen and Karlovy Vary Regions

(Pilsen, December 17, 2018) Christmas is coming and the Czech Trade Inspection Authority of the Pilsen Region and Karlovy Vary Region aimed at inspecting light chains. From the start of December it carried out sampling of 19 items. Originally there had been a suspicion that some products can be dangerous, and the suspicion proved right within a professional test. The risk of such Christmas decorations consists of the fact that it is easy to open the box with wiring. So consumers have a free access to 230 V voltage which can lead to damage to health and property. Such poor quality wiring can easily cause a fire of a Christmas tree, curtains or the whole apartment. Such goods can also cause injury from electric current.
