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 www.hotpointservice.co.uk/fridgefreezer 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.
