Sadly, over the years,we have attended a number of fires, some of them fatal, which have been caused by faulty electrical appliances.
The majority of products in your home will be safe but you should regularly check to ensure none of your household appliances are subject to a recall.
Always ensure new electrical items are registered, so manufacturers can contact you in the event of any problems. Go to www.registermyappliance.org.uk for more information and to register your electric products.
If you are concerned about a product that doesn't appear on the recall list, stop using it immediately and make your concern known to the retailer, manufacturer or local Trading Standards office.
You can also find more information from us about the checks and precautions you should take when using electrical equipment.
