Product Recall and White Goods Safety
On average one fire a day in London involves white goods such as washing machines, tumble dryers, fridges, and freezers.
Follow these tips to help you stay safe:
• Always register your white goods, new or old, to ensure that you are informed of any safety issues at www.registermyappliance.org.uk.
• If you smell burning or hear electrical ‘sparking’ noises, unplug the appliance, and seek expert advice.
• Avoid keeping white goods, especially fridges or freezers on escape routes (e.g., hallways and landings).
• Information on product recalls can be found on the government’s webpage at: www.productrecall.campaign.gov.uk
