The product poses a risk of electric shock and burns because: - the internal wiring of the pre-lit branch appears to have only single insulation; - a supplementary layer to provide double insulation is missing; - accessible metal parts: The single (basic) insulated wiring is in contact with the metal branches. Tips of some of the branches are accessible where the wrapping has not sufficiently covered the ends; - one of the submitted samples had burst into flame whilst in normal operation.
The product does not comply with the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60598.
Decorative illuminated branch. AC mains operated. Approx 1 metre in length. Brown and white models available. Items supplied in clear plastic wrapper.
