Duraflame Lighters Recalled

28,000 Lighters

Sold By

Michael's Arts & Crafts


The Duraflame Insta-match Utility Lighter sold at Michael's Arts and Crafts Stores across Canada are being recalled.

This recall involves the Duraflame Insta-match utility lighter. The handle of the lighter is either clear, red, blue, or yellow. The lighter has a black tip, a red on/off trigger, and the Duraflame logo printed on the handle. The recalled lighters can be identified by UPC 041137007814.

Testing by Health Canada has revealed that the lighters have unsafe burning characteristics, posing a burn hazard to users. For example, the flame is too high and the lighter continues to burn even after the trigger mechanism is released.

In addition, the product does not have the mandatory labelling, as required under Canadian law.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lighters and return the product to the nearest Michael's store for a full refund.
