Holstens has recalled some of its Outdoor Festoon / Bistro string lights. Some of the fittings have been fitted with reverse polarity.
If someone attempts to remove a light bulb while the power is connected, and touches the metal side of the light bulb fitting while it is still in contact with the holder, they may experience an electric shock.
Only purchases after 7 December 2016 are affected:
Stop using the products and do not try to change the light bulbs while the string of lights is connected to the power.
Return the lights to the place of purchase for a full refund or a correctly configured and certified replacement product (when available).
