    Whirlpool told to recall dryers in ‘unprecedented’ UK Government move

    Taken from the BBC,

    The UK Government is to issue an “unprecedented” recall notice of up to 500,000 Whirlpool tumble dryers which pose a fire safety risk.

    It comes four years after Whirlpool issued a warning after it found its Hotpoint, Creda and Indesit dryers had a fault which needed fixing.

    The fault was blamed for at least 750 fires over an 11-year period, according to the government.

    And in April, the Office for Product Safety and Standards (OPSS) published a report, urging Whirlpool to improve its risk management, and “reach affected consumers in more creative ways” to minimise the risk of faulty machines still being in people’s homes.

    Business minister Kelly Tolhurst told the Commons that the recall notice was “unprecedented action”.

    She was responding to Conservative minister Andrew Griffiths, who told MPs that he was still concerned about whether people still had “unsafe products” in their homes.

    Whirlpool tumble dryer safety alert

    https://www.which.co.uk/consumer-rights/advice/whirlpool-tumble-dryer-safety-alert

    More than 100 Creda, Hotpoint, Indesit, Proline and Swan tumble dryer models (all brands owned by Whirlpool) made between April 2004 and October 2015 could pose a fire risk.

    The fault in the dryers could lead to fires if excess fluff comes into contact with the heating element.

    Whirlpool has said if you have an affected machine you must unplug it immediately and do not use it until it’s been fixed.

    Trading standards has issued two enforcement notices on Whirlpool, forcing the company to warn you to unplug and not use the faulty machines.

    On 22 July 2019 Whirlpool launched a recall of tumble dryers that have not yet been modified.

    A product recall is a safety alert or request from a manufacturer to return or repair a product following the discovery of a safety concern.
