Currys recalls 50,000 microwaves
Nearly 50,000 microwaves are being recalled by Currys over fears that a faulty component could cause them to overheat and catch fire.
According to the Mail Online, the affected models were sold under the Kenwood and Russell Hobbs brand names between 2006 and 2011 and are stamped on the back with model label CJ/AL28.
The potential safety hazard has only just come to light.
Currys has urged anyone with a microwave of this type to unplug it from the mains.
A credit note or replacement product will be offered to those returning the affected microwaves to any Currys store. No receipt will be necessary.
At the time of writing there was no notification of the product recall on Currys website nor on Trading Standards’ recall page.
