Details of Recall:
A pentagon shaped disco party light.
The product poses a serious risk of electric shock as when tested there was no provision for earthing and accessible metal parts were separated from live parts only by basic insulation. The separate cord set (flexible lead) had not been correctly fitted with a standard plug. The plug that was fitted did not comply with BS1363 and the fuse did not comply with BS 1362. The fuse was shorter than the minimum length stated in the standard and contained insufficient granular filler, which is required to ensure safe operation in fault conditions. The product was not accompanied by adequate instructions and does not comply fully with the marking requirements of the relevant standard. The product does not comply with the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016.
