Whirlpool recalls 65,000 tumble dryers

BBC News has reported today that some 65,000 fire-prone tumble dryers have been found during a recall campaign by Whirlpool, but hundreds of thousands still remain in UK homes.

It has been documented that the manufacturer extended its safety programme to offer free replacements in July after the regulator stepped in, four years after the issue emerged.

According to BBC News, dangerous dryers under the Hotpoint, Indesit, Creda, Swan and Proline brands were sold in the UK for 11 years, and up to 800,000 were estimated to still be in use when the full recall began.
