Following the statement from the Metropolitan Police that a Hotpoint FF175BP fridge freezer has been identified as the initial source of the Grenfell Tower fire in London, we wanted to make you aware that Hotpoint has issued a product notice.

HOW TO CHECK IF YOU’RE AFFECTED

If you’re unsure if you own an affected model, check inside your fridge for the model number. Most will be on a bar code on a sticker behind the salad container.

If you do think you may have an affected model please contact the manufacturer on the above number or visit their website and complete an online form. Customer service agents will register your appliance and give you all current advice. It is also best to follow standard safety advice, not overload plugs, ensure sockets are not damaged and check cables and leads are in good condition.
