Which? response to Argos issuing safety alert over fears Bush tumble dryers are a fire risk

Neena Bhati, Which? Head of Campaigns, said:

“Argos needs to urgently explain how many models have been sold and how many fires have been linked to these products.

“The company must also clarify what steps it will take to ensure that customers have the right information so that we are not in a position where huge numbers of potentially unsafe products are left in people’s homes, as has happened with Whirlpool tumble dryers.

“If there is any question that the machines are faulty, the OPSS must ensure that action is taken to ensure people are protected from serious harm.”
