Make sure products are safe to use

From time to time manufacturers issue product recalls. A product recall will usually be a safety alert or request from a manufacturer to return or repair a product following the discovery of a safety concern. You can stay up to date with the latest safety issues about your products by registering them with their manufacturer or by checking the latest recalls.

It is important to check your appliances are safe to use and have no outstanding manufacturer recalls, you can check for product recalls on the manufacturers website and you can also check on the following link: Product Recall – Acting on product safety (

All of our appliances are checked for product recalls before sale but this does not mean that a manufacturer recall will not be issued at a later date, which is why it is important to regularly check your products for manufacturer recalls to ensure your product is safe to use.
