The term white goods is used to cover the large electrical items we all have in our homes and include appliances ranging from fridges and washing machines through to vacuum cleaners and kettles. Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service recommend that people register their appliances so that if there are any safety concerns or product recalls for any of the appliances in their home than they can be informed as soon as possible.
To make it easier for people to find out if their appliance has been recalled the Association of Manufacturers of Domestic Appliance (AMEDA) have set up a free to use website where you can register all of the appliances you use at home. If any of these appliances is subject to a product recall in the future the manufacturer will be able to contact you immediately to arrange for a replacement item or to carry out work on your appliance to make it safe.
Register you appliance by visiting the Register My Appliance website (opens in a new window/tab).
The UK Association of Fire Investigators (opens in a new window/tab) provides information on product recalls from all manufacturers.
