The average success rate of an electrical product recall in the UK is just 10-20%. This means that there are potentially millions of recalled electrical items still in UK homes. As most of these products have been recalled because they offer a risk of electric shock or electrical fire, they present a serious risk.
Register Your Appliances
Unless products are registered, it is very difficult to track them down.
The ‘Register My Appliance’ website makes it easy for you to register all of your electrical products. You will need the brand name, model, serial number and purchase date and the registration process is very simple to follow. The manufacturer will only contact you in the event of a recall, your details will not be used for marketing.
Go to www.registermyappliance.org.uk for more information and to register your electrical products.

If you have searched for a product that you own and it is not listed, this means that it has not been recalled and should be safe to use.
