Whirlpool ordered by UK to recall 500,000 tumble dryers

‘Unprecedented’ government move comes four years after firm
issued safety warning

The government is to order an “unprecedented” recall of up
to 500,000 Whirlpool tumble dryers – four years after fire safety
concerns were first raised.

The move is a dramatic escalation in a
long-running controversy
involving the company’s
“fire-risk” tumble dryers, and its handling of an issue that
may have left dangerous machines in UK homes.
