A product recall has been issued by Kidde Safety Europe Ltd after testing highlighted a potential issue with their fire blankets.
The testing of the fire blankets has revealed the fire blankets failed to meet the safety standard required, with the tested fire blankets failing to prevent re-ignition of oil pan fires, containing 3 litres of oil. Following the results of the tests, a product recall has been initiated on a precautionary basis to ensure user safety.
The fire blankets in question are:
- Sized 1m2
- Branded “Kidde” or “Lifesaver”
- Include the Kitemark symbol and licence number 35021
- Have “Homesaver” on the label of the fire blanket itself
Should you have one of the fire blankets which has been recalled, please return it as soon as possible to the retailer it was purchased from. Kidde Safety Europe LTD will then arrange for a compliant replacement fire blanket, which meets the British safety standards, to be supplied to you.
