The federal agency has released a list of more than two dozen chargers that “pose an unacceptable risk of electric shock and fire.”
Consumers are advised to stop using the products immediately and either return them or throw them away.
Health Canada recommends consumers check that electrical products have a recognized certification mark before making a purchase.
The certification symbol should be on the product itself and not just the packaging.
A list of the recalled products is available on the Health Canada website.
