Contact Hotpoint

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.

Marin has concluded that all 2016 'Pine Mountain 1' and 2017 'Pine Mountain' bicycles will be voluntarily recalled pursuant to the rules of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and Health Canada (HC), as well as Trading Standards in the UK, due to the potential for the fork to bend or break at the fork crown area (although no injuries have occurred so far).

We ask that you cease using your bicycle and immediately contact your Marin dealer.

Only the specific models and model years are affected.
