Clipper Multi-purpose Lighters recalled due to potential fire and burn hazard
Immediately stop using the lighters and return to the place of purchase for a refund.
The brand "Clipper" is marked on the top of the lighter. These lighters have a tube that extends from the lighter. The lot number can be found at the bottom of the sticker that shows the UPC code.
The Shiny Colour Lighters have a black tube while the Classic Colour Lighters have a silver tube. Both lighters were sold in 24 unit boxes.
Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has determined that these lighters do not meet the Lighters Regulations in Canada and may pose a fire or burn hazard. Specifically the lighters:
- may exceed the allowable flame height during ignition;
- may exhibit an abnormal, sudden increase in flame height;
- may continue to burn after the trigger mechanism has been released;
- may not have a child resistant mechanism.
As of April 9, 2021 the company has received no reports of incidents in Canada, and no reports of injury.
