Safety warning: Paraffin stoves

2008-06-11 00:00

Consumers have been warned not to buy paraffin stoves and heaters branded Karona and Fujica, sold and distributed under Pulse Holdings, as they do not comply with a compulsory specification.

“Even though the owner did prove to SABS that he reported the matter to police and to his insurance company, inspectors in collaboration with relevant investigating bodies are tracing the whereabouts of the products, as they are unsafe for human use.” He appealed to anyone involved in marketing, distributing or selling this product to cease immediately, as it is illegal to sell non-compliant products, especially paraffin stoves and heaters as they have a potential to cause fire hazards. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
