4. In Canada: Nova Scotia Power Recalls Blazer Flashing Reflector Safety Light
Reason for recall: burn hazard but it’s so much more than that. While only released in Nova Scotia, I thought this was a worthy notice for all of us to remember. As it turns out, the small batteries can easily be removed. That’s bad enough until you consider who might remove those batteries (i.e. kids!) and what might happen if those batteries were ingested. So, you can see why I posted this! Click here for more details
