Enersource Hydro Mississauga Recalls 36 Bulb Holiday LED Lights

MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 24, 2006) -

Attention News Editors:

Enersource Hydro Mississauga has initiated a recall of the 36 bulb holiday LED lights recently distributed at a LED Holiday Light Exchange Event on Friday, November 17, 2006 in the Village of Streetsville. The recall is a precautionary step prompted by a potential safety risk caused by light malfunctions confirmed by a Safety Advisory issued today by the Electrical Safety Authority related to the GreenLite Lighting Corporation (GreenLite) 36 bulb holiday LED lights.

"The safety of our customers and the residents of the City of Mississauga is our primary concern," says Gunars Ceksters, President and CEO of Enersource Corporation. "Enersource is committed to the Holiday LED Exchange program and we will continue with all of our exchange events across the City by distributing new, equally energy efficient LED light sets."

Enersource recommends that all customers who received the GreenLite 36 bulb light set at the November 17, 2006 Village of Streetsville LED Holiday Light Exchange return them to the Enersource's Mississauga Office during regular office hours or at one of the future LED Holiday Light Exchange events. In return, residents will receive a new set of NOMA brand LED lights.
