Dyson recalls a million heaters over fire fears
DYSON is recalling more than one million heaters over fears they could pose a fire risk.
The recall of the AM04 and AM05 models was issued on their website after "a small number" short-circuited, causing a small internal fire.
The British company stressed that other models are unaffected and no one has been injured as a result of the fault.
In a message posted on its website, Dyson is urging customers to return the products for a free engineering fix.
"We're voluntarily recalling all AM04 and AM05 heaters due to a potential safety issue.
"Out of a million heaters sold worldwide, we know of a small number that have short-circuited resulting in a small fire within the machine.
"There have been no instances of injury or property damage, but safety is our first priority."
Wiltshire-based Dyson, which employs more than 3,600 staff worldwide, was founded in 1992 and now sells machines, including vacuum cleaners and hand dryers, in more than 50 markets.
