Check your Christmas lights if you purchased them online recently.
A safety issue has been identified with two batches of Achin Outdoor String Christmas Lights sold via Amazon.
According to the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC), who have issued two product recalls over the lights, the products present a risk of electric shock as they do not “meet the requirements of the relevant regulations”.
The brand of the lights are Achin, with the model number for the first recall being ILE27-2010030.
The Amazon ASIN for this first batch of products is B09PFRFSV1, though the batch number and barcode are unknown.
This batch was sold online through Amazon and there are approximately 33 affected products in the Republic of Ireland.
