Primark’s Christmas fairy lights warning


Shoppers who bought Christmas fairy lights from Primark could be at risk of an electric shock.

Customers who purchased the lights have this week been urged to return them after a safety risk was identified.

Both the multi coloured and clear sets of lights have a “potential issue with the performance of the plug, that could lead to an electric shock,” say Primark, which has a store at MK1.

A spokesman said: “With the safety of our customers at the forefront of our minds we are inviting you to return these items purchased for a full refund.”

The potential fault applies to boxes of 40, 100 and 200 fairy lights which were on sale between October 19 and November 28 this year.
