Health Canada recalls over 8,000 power bars sold at Canadian Tire

Health Canada has issued a national recall for power bars sold at Canadian Tire.

The more than 8,000 "Mastercraft 8-outlet Metal Power Bars" have been recalled as they may cause electric shocks.

The units were sold from December 2019 to December 2020.

According to Health Canada, the black plastic caps that cover the power bar’s receptacles can come off when someone unplugs a cord from the unit.

This exposes the internal components, posing “a risk of electric shock to the consumer.”

However, there have been no reports of injuries.

“Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled products and return them to any Canadian Tire store for a full refund,” Health Canada advised.
