Total Recalls: Fatal fire anniversary prompts campaign push

04 November 2016

Two years ago on Saturday, 5 November, a London Coroner recommended a series of measures designed to improve white goods' fire safety following the inquest into the death of Santosh Benjamin Muthiah, who lost his life following a fire which started in a fridge freezer.

To date, none of the recommendations made by Her Majesty's Coroner, Andrew Walker, have been implemented despite white goods accounting for one fire a day in London.

Help us lobby the Government to implement these recommendations by writing to your MP

We are asking MPs to sign an early day motion that calls for a closer look at the potential fire risk currently posed by white goods and the inadequacies of product recalls.  

The Coroner's recommendations now form part of our Total Recall campaign to improve the manufacturing standards of white goods such as dishwashers, washing machines, tumble dryers, fridges and freezers, and to create a nationally recognised and publicly accessible product recall register that people can easily check.
