Product Safety Advice & Information

Like anything, there are many products on the market that if used incorrectly can pose a risk to you and your family. Our pages below provide comprehensive information on some of the products that we know have caused accidental injuries.

From time to time, certain products can also be recalled due to a fault that could pose a risk to the user. When this happens it’s important that you take action – ensure that when buying new or used appliances you register them with the recall monitoring service Register My Appliance, and for the latest product recall information see the Chartered Trading Standards Institute.
