Alex Neill, Which? Managing Director of Home Products and Services, said:
“Consumers in the UK will be asking why it took Whirlpool so long to inform them about these dangerous kettles, when a formal recall was announced in North America almost a week earlier.
“We’d advise anyone that has one of these kettles to contact Whirlpool to get a replacement.”

Which? recently launched a campaign to ‘End Dangerous Products’, calling for fundamental reform of the UK’s antiquated product safety regime to keep dangerous products out of our homes.
The campaign also demands that manufacturers and retailers immediately remove unsafe products from the market and consumers’ homes.
