NVizcaya DTI warns public vs fake Christmas lights

Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya (October 23) -- The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) here has warned local consumers on the proliferation of cheap and uncertified Christmas lights in the wake of the holiday season.

"Let us be vigilant and careful not to be easily swayed and encouraged to buy these materials. Please report those who are selling them in our office," said Lucy Guerrero, DTI supervising trade and industry officer.

According to Guerrero, cheap and imported Christmas lights are now being circulated for selling in the province and in the region as well by unscrupulous traders preying on innocent consumers and buyers.

She advised consumers to buy their needed Christmas products and requirements instead from accredited business establishments in the province.

"In this way, we can be assured of the safety and quality of the products that we are buying," she said.

Guerrero also said that most fire incidents have been found out to have originated from uncertified Christmas products because of their poor quality.

She made the warning before the members of the ConsumerNet who have attended the Consumer Welfare Month celebration culminating program at the provincial health office here Thursday. (bme/PIA NVizcaya) [top]
