Check your Beko fridge freezer, advise trading standards

Walsall trading standards officers are urging residents to check their Beko fridge freezers after a national warning was issued about a potential fire risk.

London Fire Brigade has warned that the latest fire risk could affect up to 500,000 Beko fridge freezers so trading standards officers in Walsall have urged people to check their appliances to see if they were manufactured between January 2000 and October 2006.

The affected fridge freezers have so far been linked to 20 fires in London since 2008, and these incidents are thought to have led to 15 injuries and one death.

Councillor Zahid Ali, cabinet member for communities and partnerships at Walsall Council, said: “We are urging residents who have a Beko fridge freezer to double check the model number and contact the Beko helpline if they are concerned. It is better to be safe than sorry,” he added.
