Published - 5 December 2017

Following the reports into the cause of the tragic Grenfell Tower fire, Hackney Trading Standards are asking all residents to check whether they have a CAPLE refrigerator made between 2007 and 2008.
This product is subject to a product safety recall due to a risk of overheating and fire due to a component fault.
