Counterfeit electrical products are gatecrashing our sales…
They may look like the real deal, however counterfeit electrical products are particularly risky as they often contain faulty parts that can overheat and catch fire or deliver a fatal electric shock. Stay vigilant during the Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas sales this year! Steer clear of counterfeit products by purchasing through reputable retailers.
We all shop online now but its advisable to look for some assurance that the product complies with UK safety standards. This will mean that the mark of an approval body, such as the BSI Kitemark or the CE mark, will be displayed, not only on the packaging, but on the product itself.
The intention of this post is to raise awareness of the problem.
