September 6, 2017 - “Smart Electrician” receptacle-type ground fault circuit interrupters Model GLX-15ATR by Huizhou Faith Electric Manufacture bear unauthorized Intertek Certification Marks for Canada and the States.

According to Intertek, these GFCIs may fail to properly break a circuit in a fault; they were previously found to be non-compliant, subsequently terminated in 2015 yet continue to be found in the marketplace.

The number of units involved in this warning is unknown, but are known to have been sold at Menards, and maybe other retailers.

Identification: On the product is a cETLus certification mark with Control Number 4008942, identifying model as GLX-15ATR. The inspection tag shows date of manufacture 2016-45.

These products should be removed from service and returned to the point of purchase. Distributors and retailers should discontinue sales and return all inventories to their suppliers.
