Ho Ho holly crap those lights are hot! Loblaws Recalls LED Outdoor Christmas Lights



Canadian customers who have purchased outdoor Christmas lights from Loblaws in recent weeks are being alerted that the company is recalling three specific outdoor lighting products that pose a risk of fire or electrocution hazard. Loblaws has voluntarily issued the recall for its LED 70-count outdoor Christmas light strings because it places the safety of its customers above profits. Loblaws says it is simply being proactive by issuing the product recall before any injuries have been reported by customers who already have been using the defective lights.

The recalled lights, sold in strings that featured multi-colored, blue or white bulbs, are a popular item at Dominion stores in Newfoundland in addition to being marketed at such stores as Atlantic Superstore, Fresh Mart and Save Easy in the Atlantic Canadian provinces. Retail stores also sold the lights throughout Quebec, Ontario as well as Western Canada. Loblaws is encouraging customers to return the defective lighting strings to the store where they were purchased and is guaranteeing customers a full refund of their purchase price whether or not they are able to show a store receipt. Customers can opt for a refund or can select other lighting merchandise by returning the recalled products to the customer service desk.
