However, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority detected offer of two torches that pose serious risk to consumers in the Czech market. “We speak about rechargeable torches with electric plug. When a user manipulates with their chargers, there is a risk of injury by electric current because the plugs don’t comply with the stipulated model. Moreover, none of the products is marked properly or equipped with instructions for use in Czech. Documentation on both torches was sent to the Ministry of Industry and Trade that would notify them into the system RAPEX,” said Vladimír Velčovský, the Director General of the CTIA.
