Product Safety Australia has recalled a variety of outdoor Christmas rope lights from Ausway Pacific, sold nationally from e-tailers such as kogan.com, crazysales.com.au and mydeal.com.au.
Some of the Taizhou Fangkai Lighting branded lights feature faulty controllers, with incorrect wiring presenting a risk of electric shock due to exposed wires.
Affected SKUs include; FK-4M-C88, FK-21M-C200, FK-25M-C240 and FK-9M-C70.
Consumers with controllers marked model number “D1222” are advised to unplug and cease using the lights immediately, and to contact Ausway Pacific Pty Ltd on (03) 9548 0224 for a full refund or replacement.
The lights were sold nationally between 1 October and 12 November 2018, with further information on Product Safety Australia’s website here.
