Public urged to stop buying fire-risk fridges and freezers

Which? calls for plastic-backed appliances to be taken off sale
as tougher safety tests come in

A consumer group is urging Britons not to buy potentially
flammable
plastic-backed fridges
and freezers as stringent tests that
effectively ban new ones from being manufactured come into
force.

Which? has campaigned for a change to the safety standard for
the appliances since 2017 after its testing found the plastic
backing can be extremely flammable and, in the event of a house
fire, can accelerate the spread of flames.
