Whirlpool told to recall unsafe tumble dryers.
The National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) welcomes news that the government has given Whirlpool notice that it intends to require the company to recall up to 500,000 of its tumble dryers over fire safety risks.
NFCC has been calling for changes to improve product recalls and manufacturing standards, including the need for a single Government backed register for UK product recalls, for a number of years.
The dryers affected are the vented and condensing tumble dryers branded Hotpoint, Creda, Indesit, Swan or Proline, that were made between April 2004 and October 2015. More
