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.
Important product recalls are below
The following notice has been issued by the retailer:
Swann Wireless Door Chime Twin Pack with Mains Power - A95TB
Swann Wireless Door Chime with Mains Power - N31QG
Maplin has been advised by their supplier 'SWANN' of the Recall of the two products above.
If you have purchased one of these products from Maplin, please immediately refrain from using it and return it to store for a refund.
The details of this recall are below:
Swann is voluntarily recalling certain wireless door chime packs purchased from Maplin between 27 January 2016 and 31 October 2016.
Swann has identified that, as a result of a manufacturing issue, in a small proportion of units the plastic around the assembly screws on the speaker unit can fracture, leading to the risk that the two halves of the unit may become detached from one another. This could cause the live internal electrical components to become exposed to the user, creating a risk of electric shock if the unit is plugged in to the mains electricity supply at the time.
This affects both single chime and double chime packs. No other Swann products are affected.
