Canadian Tire Recalls Specific Line of Christmas Lights

TORONTO, Dec. 23, 2015 /CNW/ - Two weeks ago, Canadian Tire issued a recall on 12 types of Christmas lights sold under the brand name, 'Holiday Collection'.  Today, Canadian Tire is recalling an additional 33 types of indoor and outdoor Christmas lights from the 'Holiday Collection', specifically those sold after August 1, 2015.

"We take tremendous pride in sourcing quality products for Canadians and we've been let down by two factories that have manufactured products that do not meet our safety standards.  We will obviously address these failures with the factories, but in the meantime we're asking Canadians to return the identified products," said Allan MacDonald, Chief Operating Officer of Canadian Tire.  

"We believe that other Canadian retailers are facing similar issues and we trust that they will proactively address them as well," concluded MacDonald.

To avoid confusion, it is important to note that the large majority of Christmas lights sold by Canadian Tire – including NOMA lights - are not affected by this recall. 

For the full list of 'Holiday Collection' products being recalled, please see the chart below.

Customers who have purchased the recalled products should discontinue use immediately and return it to any Canadian Tire store for a refund.
