Health Canada warns of potential safety hazards with some seasonal lights

Health Canada is warning consumers of defects with some seasonal lights that may pose potential safety risks:

Health Canada initiated a national sampling and evaluation project to test seasonal lights due to a number of incident reports received by the department. Testing by Health Canada has shown hazards in several products including overheating, as well as the risk of  fire and electric shock.

BC Safety Authority recently shared holiday lighting safety tips to remind British Columbians of how to keep safe during the holidays.

Read the Health Canada alert to see a list of products and their related hazards.

Multi-Agency Action Shuts Down Manufacturer/Distributor of Unapproved Commercial Gas Ovens

Toronto Police and TSSA Fuels Safety inspectors executed a search warrant against Kitchen Queen, a Toronto-based manufacturer of fuel-fired kitchen equipment alleged to have manufactured and distributed unapproved equipment and forged CSA rating plates. The search warrant was based on a Canadian Standards Association (CSA) investigation.

The public safety risk is potentially national in scope, given that Kitchen Queen is one of the largest manufacturers/distributors of Tandoori gas ovens in Canada. TSSA is working with Health Canada to discuss issuing a nation-wide product recall.

If you have questions about the equipment involved, please contact TSSA’s Fuels Technical Services team at 416-734-2726 or email fuels_technical_services@tssa.org.
