Ibis Wheelchairs Tesco Chocolate Tesco Kettles and Missing Bosch Dishwashers

Ibis Comfort Wheelchairs have had to be recalled because the hinges holding part of the chair are faulty and a potential danger.
The Ibis Comfort Wheelchair that was manufactured from 29th January to the 12th April 2013 has had to be taken out of shops
The hinges in the chair mean that there is a fault with the tilt setting on the wheelchair which could break and send the seat tipping backwards suddenly and unexpectedly.
People who have purchased wheelchairs with the old faulty hinges have been advised to contact the shop they bought it from to see if an exchange of the tilt piece can be arranged.
If you are selling or have sold the wheelchairs you are required to speak to Handicare and see if they can provide you with instructions of how to change the hinging blocks. You also have to contact Handicare and let them know when these pieces have been replaced.
Tesco Belgian Chocolate Crowns Leave out Nuts
Tesco have had to stop selling the chocolate treats because despite declaring there were no nuts in the products they found that some of the products had been contaminated by nuts and posed a danger to those with a nut allergy.
The supermarket has chosen to remove the Tesco Finest Restaurant Collection 2 Triple Belgium Chocolate Crowns as a precautionary measure so people with a nut allergy didn’t eat them and have an allergic reaction.
Tesco have apologised and told their customers to bring back the chocolate treats to the shop for a full refund with or without receipt and have warned those who are allergic to nuts not to eat them.
Kettle Bottoms Falling Off
Tesco are taking the Tesco Rapid Boil kettle off their shelves after it was found that the bottom of the kettles were in danger of falling off and could cause burns.
They have identified the fault in a small number of kettles that could cause burns and because of this are recalling it.
The serial number of the kettle affected are models JKRBP12 with the batch code 130309.
Customers can find the details of the model and batch code by looking at the bottom of the kettle and the base unit. There should be a sticker on both with a serial number and model code on it.
The recall is a precautionary measure by Tesco because the kettles are at risk of causing burns taken. If you bought the kettle in question you need to take it back and will be entitled to a full refund receipt or not.
Thousands of unsafe Bosch Dishwashers are still Owned and Potentially Used here in the UK
The Consumer Editor for ITV News Chris Choi believes that there are still dangerous dishwashers in use.
The dishwashers that were sold between 1999 and 2005 were at risk of catching fire.
He researched the manufacturer to find out how many of the dishwashers that were at risk of catching on fire had been recalled. He discovered that out of the 632000 dangerous dishwashers 478940 remain unaccounted for.
The information that was obtained was as a result of a product recall alert in July 2011.
Only a quarter of the dishwashers have been found despite Bosch has gone to great lengths to recall the products from customers that are in danger of catching fire.
They had adverts sent out 850000 letters and telephoned 140000 of their customers to warn them about the dangers.
Bosch have published reports of 269 separate incidences of their products catching fire and 14 of those were “serious” incidents.
Chris Choi now believes that the product recall system isn’t working and found that only 20% of faulty goods are traced.
