5 stars

Each year, the Electrical Safety Foundation International sponsors May as National Electrical Safety Month. This May, ESFI’s focus is the Buyer Beware Anti-Counterfeiting Campaign to help raise awareness about dangerous and defective counterfeit electrical products that are threatening to harm public health and safety.  ESFI has a buyer beware fact sheet and a tool kit that professionals and consumers can use to educate the public about this very serious problem.

According to  ESFI, “unlike fake handbags, watches, or designer apparel, these fraudulent products such as circuit breakers, power strips, extension cords, batteries, hair dryers, and holiday lights can cause fire, explosion, shock, burns, and deadly electrocutions.

Counterfeit electrical products pose significant safety hazards, and can cause deaths, injuries and substantial property loss in the home and the workplace if left undetected. Education and recognition among consumers, families, and communities will save lives and prevent devastation, injuries, and property damage.”
