What you should do
Immediately stop using the above products and either return them to the retailer where you bought them or dispose of them according to your municipal electronic waste requirements.
Use only certified electrical products.Provincial and territorial electrical safety authorities require that all electrical products that connect to an electrical outlet be certified. This means that they conform to the applicable Canadian national safety standard for the product.
Certified products can be identified by a recognized certification mark on the product.
The certification mark must be on the product itself, not just the packaging.
If you are unsure whether a product is certified, ask the retailer to show you the certification mark on the product before you buy it.
