We have been made aware that Meyer Group Limited has decided to recall the lids of certain of the above Prestige pressure cooker model, which has been on sale since 2004.
Meyer have identified that in the event of a blockage in the pressure regulator the rubber gasket may not release excess pressure as intended. In a small number of cases this may present a risk of pressurised steam/food particles being released forcibly from the rim of the lid, or movement of the pressure cooker, giving rise to a danger of burning or scalding.
It has come to our attention that a purchased connector component has been supplied to us which is not to our specification and that this component has been fitted to a number of White Knight Condenser dryers built in 2010. We believe that the use of this connector can potentially lead to overheating of the appliance and if left unresolved could create a potential fire hazard over time. We wish to identify the location of all potentially affected dryers and replace them free of charge in order to eliminate the risk.

HOW TO CHECK IF YOUR DRYER IS AFFECTED

We are trying to identify the location of these machines in order to remove the potential risk associated with this connector. First, please check if you have one of the models listed above, and if so, please check whether your appliance has a serial number from the following list of potentially affected batches (the model and serial number can be found inside the door of your dryer as shown in the diagram).

If your dryer has a serial number within any of the affected batches, please stop using it and disconnect it from the mains outlet as a precautionary measure, and call us on the following telephone number in order for us to arrange for your dryer to be replaced free of charge.

If your dryer has a serial number within any of the affected batches, please stop using it and disconnect it from the mains outlet as a precautionary measure, and call us on the following telephone number in order for us to arrange for your dryer to be replaced free of charge.
