Underwriters Laboratories (UL) is notifying the public that any product bearing one of these labels has not been evaluated by UL to the appropriate Standards for Safety. None of these products with the stolen labels will therefore be known to comply with any safety requirements.

It is possible that these stolen labels will be attached to decorative lighting. With several holidays coming up when people enjoy decorating their homes and businesses with lighting, please help spread the word that they need to pay attention now to the UL labels attached to these products. Under normal circumstances, these labels can and should provide a sense of security for consumers because we understand that these products have been tested to certain standards and are verified to be safe for personal or commercial use.
