Product recalls

Faulty electrical goods can cause fires. If you are concerned about the safety of a product, stop using it and make your concern known to the retailer, manufacturer or your local Trading Standards office.

  • Take extra care with second-hand appliances, ensure they have been safety checked and are not listed on the product recall register
  • Always ensure new appliances are registered so that manufacturers can contact you in the event of any problems. Go to: www.registermyappliance.org.uk for more information and to register your electrical products.
