By Peter Chubb - Sep 22, 2016

With this being a website all about the review of products, the latest tech and gaming news, along with problems, we always try to cover product recalls as well, although we know we can never report them all. However, we feel the need to inform you of a recall that B&Q has issued in the UK. This is because it involves the Mac Allister 710w Electric Hedge Trimmer MHTP710, which has a potential risk of injury to the user.

The UK home and garden retailer has identified an issue with the Mac Allister 710w Electric Hedge Trimmer MHTP710 (with Barcode: 5052931430734), as the motor could fail and in doing so the fragments from that motor could be ejected from the casing. If this were to happen, there is a risk that it could cause serious injury, especially if they were to hit your face, or worse, your eyes.

B&Q has been selling this item from January 2015 to September 2016, and so urges those that own one to stop using them immediately. You should then take the trimmer to your nearest B&Q store in order to receive a full refund.

Diy.com says that for those owners worried should contact the helpline on UK: 0300 3034482 ROI: 1800 946327. And please remember STOP USING THIS TRIMMER RIGHT NOW.
