Grenfell Tower fire - Hotpoint fridge/freezer

As you might be aware, the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower is believed to have started in a Hotpoint fridge/freezer.  

The model involved (FF175BP (white) or FF175BG (grey), was made between 2006 and 2009.

If you have a Hotpoint fridge/freezer you should call Whirlpool Corporation’s freephone hotline on 0800 316 3826 or visit to register your details for further updates.

At this stage there is no specific reason for consumers to switch off their fridge freezer pending further investigation.
