B&Q Recalls Christmas Lights
WARNING - IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
An electrical fault has been discovered in B&Q's Mains Indoor 50 Marble lights in clear, red or green. No other Christmas lights in the B&Q range are affected.
The lights which retailed for £14.99 have been removed from all of the B&Q stores across UK and Ireland. A spokeswoman for the chain said no incidents had been reported but urged 237 customers who purchased the sets to return them.
A statement from B&Q said: "Despite rigorous quality control procedures, it has been brought to our attention that an inconsistent manufacturing defect makes the Indoor 50 Marble lights unsafe for use."
