WHITE GOODS FIRES AND PRODUCT RECALLS

That this House is deeply concerned by the potential fire risk currently posed by white goods such as dishwashers, washing machines, tumble dryers, fridges and freezers, and the inadequacies of product recalls; notes that the London Fire Brigade has attended over 2000 incidents since 2011 to tackle fires involving white goods, with an estimated cost to the public purse of over £118 million; further notes that such fires can be devastating for those involved and that the Coroner's recommended changes to improve the product recall system following a fatal fire in 2010 have not yet been made; notes that these concerns have been echoed by Which?, Electrical Safety First, the Chief Fire Officers Association and the Local Government Association; calls upon manufacturers to make publicly available the risk assessments they undertake once a fault is found in a product; and further calls upon the Government to take urgent action as called for by the London Fire Brigade in its Total Recalls campaign, including the introduction of a single register for UK product recalls, readily accessible to the public online.
