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.

To users of the Nikon D750 digital SLR camera - possible image shading from shutter (update 12/07/2017)
Thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.
In July of 2015 and with an additional notice in February of 2016 we have announced that the shutter in some Nikon D750 digital SLR cameras manufactured between October of 2014 and June of 2015 does not function normally, sometimes resulting in shading of a portion of images. Since that time, further examination of the issue has clarified the fact that the same issue may occur with D750 cameras manufactured from July through September, 2014 and from July, 2015 through September, 2016.
Therefore, any D750 manufactured from July, 2014 through September, 2016 is eligible for inspection and repair of its shutter. Please direct inquiries regarding this issue to your nearest Nikon service centre.
