Microwaves recalled over risk of electric shocks
Wednesday 25 January 2012
Thousands of microwave ovens have been recalled because of fears they could cause severe electric shocks.
Sanyo said those owning microwaves with the model numbers EM-C8787B UK2 (a black colour) or EM-C8787W (a white colour), should stop using them immediately and unplug them from the wall.
The company said 8,156 of the machines were sold in the UK and Ireland between March 2010 to halfway through this month.
The problem is believed to have been caused by some of the printed circuit boards within the internal control panel having electrical contact with the small buttons on the external control panel.
A free phone line has been set up to take calls from those concerned about their microwaves and refunds will be given, the company said.
All other Sanyo microwaves can be used without concern, it added.
