A number of uncertified USB chargers are being found as “an unacceptable risk” for both electric shock and fire.
Health Canada is putting out a warning to those who may have one of 27 chargers that have been deemed dangerous with some of those chargers being found in Western Canada after tests were performed on them.
A full list of recalled chargers can be found here.
If you have one of the recalled chargers, you are asked stop using it immediately and either return it or throw it away.
Health Canada says you should be charging your electronics using only certified products.
