  • Health Dept. Warning-Lighters

    OTTAWA (CP) - The Health Department has issued a warning about
    dangerous lighters being sold illegally in Canada.
    It says they pose potential fire, injury and burn hazards.
    They have been known to explode or leak gas when dropped or
    exposed to heat, continue to burn after the trigger is released,
    and have excessive flame heights.
    Health Canada inspectors have confiscated thousands of
    disposable and refillable lighters from convenience stores, gas
    stations and other retail outlets across the country.
    However, it's still not known who is importing them.
    Retailers caught selling the lighters could have them seized by
    the department, and could also face prosecution under the Hazardous
    Products Act.
    Consumers are asked to stop using the lighters if they have
    them, and contact the nearest Health Canada product safety office.
    The illegal lighters include: Actex, Alpine, American Match,
    A-M, Best, Boda Bing, Cig, C-Lites, Eagle Lites Easyway, Elite,
    Everglide, Gil, Happy, Harry, King, Liberty Lites, Living Picture
    A-G, Maxlite, Meibai 3000, One Plus, Regal Light, Rollnite,
    Snaplite, Spin-Lite, Strik'n Lite, Sun, Sun Lite, Touch Lite,
    W-Push-Lite, Viva and Wax.
