Chemical

The product poses a chemical risk because the allergy caused by this substance manifests itself in the form of irritation, rashes, burns, joint pain and in some cases debilitating acute and generalised eczema. It would also appear that the allergy resulting from contact with dimethylfumarate (DMF), combined with other pathologies, can cause chronic or acute respiratory disorders. The characteristics of the substance, i.e. its volatile nature, make it likely to contaminate products in the vicinity and permanently permeate finished products exposed to it, thus aggravating the danger.

5 incidents reported.

Voluntary measures: Voluntary withdrawal from the market and recall from consumers by the importer.

Burns,
Health risk / other

The product poses a risk of burns because:

- there is no operating pressure on the appliance,

- the type of regulator to be used, indicating in particular reduced pressure; information concerning the minimum distance between the appliance and the gas cylinder is missing in the installation and user instructions,

and a risk of CO poisoning because

- there is no marking on the appliance about the pressure, which can cause deficient combustion leading to a build-up of CO,

- CO concentration of the neutral combustion gases is 0.2189%, which exceeds the requirement of 0.2%.

The product does not comply with the Gas Appliances Directive and the relevant European standard EN 14543.
