Aug. 2, 2019 - Counterfeit CSA Group certification marks have shown up on packaging for Marmon Retail Electrical Products’ (Marmon REP's) Serpentec locking extension cord connectors.

CSA, which develops standards for, tests, inspects and certifies electrical products, notified the public about the connectors this week. They have been sold in both physical and online marketplaces, including Home Depot and Amazon.

While there have been no reports of damage, fire or injury to date, CSA has neither tested nor certified the products to the applicable standards. The affected units carry the model numbers ‘630-15AREPLEND’ and ‘630-20AREPLEND’ and display the unauthorized certification marks on the back of the product packaging, as shown in the photos. Customers with questions or concerns are encouraged to contact the manufacturer.
