Following the Metropolitan Police Service’s statement that a Hotpoint FF175BP fridge freezer has been identified as the initial source of the Grenfell Tower fire, the Government has ordered an immediate examination of the unit by technical experts to establish the cause of the incident.
This product, which was manufactured between 2006 and 2009, has not been subject to product recalls and this testing will establish whether any further action is required.
If you believe you may own a Hotpoint fridge freezer model number FF175BP (white) or FF175BG (grey)  you should call Whirlpool Corporation’s freephone hotline on 0800 316 3826 or visit their website to register for further updates.
At this stage there is no specific reason for consumers to switch off their fridge freezer pending further investigation.

25 Jul 2016 Recall: Cannondale Slate Bicycles

The following notice has been issued by the manufacturer:

This safety notice affects all 2016 Cannondale Slate bicycles sold worldwide.

Slate bicycles

All 2016 Cannondale Slate Bicycles

All 2016 Slate models are sold with inner tube tires. When modification is attempted to run tubeless, (i.e. removal of the inner tube) the tire bead may not seat properly in the rim and the tire could come off the rim. Cannondale has received reports of this occurring in the field, posing a safety risk.

If the inner tube is removed from the rim, the tire bead may not seat properly in the rim and the tire could come off the rim, which could lead to an accident and risk of injury.

Slate is safe when ridden in the original condition with an inner tube. Any riders who have modified their Slates to run tubeless should:

  1. IMMEDIATELY STOP RIDING, and have inner tubes returned/installed in both wheels before riding again.
  2. Contact an Authorized Cannondale Dealer to receive a no-cost replacement wheel set. Use the contact for your region below. Your Dealer will contact you when the replacement wheel sets are available.

Is it okay to ride my Slate in its original configuration (with an inner tube)?

Yes! This issue only affects those riders who wish to modify their Slates to run tubeless. However, while it is not unsafe to run these bikes with tubes, we would like everyone to receive a new wheelset.

I ride my Slate tubeless, what should I do?

Stop riding, convert your Slate back to using inner tubes, and visit your Cannondale dealer to receive a free set of replacement wheels with upgraded rims that will ensure maximum performance and safety when riding tubeless.

If you have any questions about this Safety Notice, please call:
United Kingdom: 01202 732288
North America US/Canada: 1-800-BIKEUSA
In Europe, please consult your nearest Authorized Cannondale Dealer.


Slate wheels can be identified by the 'Slate' logo decal on both the front and rear wheels.

The Slate wheel comes in three decal colors: Black (above top), Orange (above middle) & Green (above bottom).



The replacement wheel uses a MAVIC XM419 rim model shown above.
