Which? response to the Coroner’s report on Whirlpool tumble dryer fire

Alex Neill, Which? Managing Director of Home Products and Services, said:
“Th​e Coroner’s​ report exposes the fundamental failings of Whirlpool’s handling of unsafe products. The Government should urgently investigate if this is a breach of the company’s obligations under product safety law and immediately enforce a full product recall of all remaining fire risk tumble dryers in people’s home.

“This case is further evidence that the UK’s product safety regime is simply not fit-for-purpose and must be reformed, with the creation of a new national body to lead on issues of this nature.”
