Health Canada warns of the recall of several USB wall chargers due to shock, burn or fire hazards
Health Canada recently tested a number of USB wall chargers intended for use with cell phones, tablets and other devices as part of a planned national compliance and enforcement project.
The following certified and uncertified products were found to pose an unacceptable risk of electric shock, burn or fire, and are being recalled by industry. This table will be updated if and when new products are recalled.
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 a wall socket 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.
