The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the bulbs in Holiday Ultra-Brite Lights’ string of 50 clear or multi-coloured festive lights can be pulled out of their sockets, exposing users to a potential shock.
The lights are manufactured in China for Universal Distribution Center LLC, of Edison, N.J., and were sold in dollar stores in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Connecticut from October 2008 through December 2008 for about $2 US.
The CPSC says consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lights and return the product to the place of purchase for a full refund.
The agency has not had any reports of injury from the use of this product.
