B&Q issues urgent recall over remote control plug sets
Product recall - B&Q has issued an urgent recall over two of its remote control on/off plug sets due to a potential fire risk.
They were on sale from September 2014 to November 2017.
A small number of these products have shown excessive heat build-up inside the plug, and in some circumstances, this could cause items in contact with them to ignite.
The two products are:
- REMOTE CONTROL ON/OFF SET TWIN SET - product barcode number: 5052931395033
- REMOTE CONTROL ON/OFF SET TRIPLE SET- product barcode number: 4895130705675
There is a potential fire risk so if you, or someone you know, has bought one of these products, stop using it and take the below steps immediately:
- Switch it off at the wall
- Remove the plug
- Return it to your local B&Q store where you will be refunded
