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.

  • Look for these signs that there may suggest an electrical product is counterfeit, such as:
    • no certification mark on the product
    • poor quality, for example prongs appear loose,
    • unusually inexpensive price; and/or
    • grammatical errors and unusual fonts on the product, labelling or packaging.
  • Popular products and brands are more likely to have counterfeit versions. Counterfeit electrical products that do not meet Canadian electrical safety requirements may be dangerous.
  • If you suspect a product is counterfeit, stop using it immediately and either return it to the retailer where you bought it or dispose of it according to your municipal electronic waste requirements.
