Product recall: Kidde Lifesaver Fire Blanket


Kidde Safety Europe Ltd has identified a potential safety issue with regard to fire blankets sized 1m x 1m which may impact the fire blankets’ effectiveness in the event of an oil pan fire. No reports of any adverse incidents have been received to date. However, testing of certain fire blankets has identified a risk that the affected fire blankets may not fully extinguish an oil pan fire and/or may allow the fire to reignite very soon after application of the fire blanket. Accordingly, a recall has been initiated on a precautionary basis to ensure end-user safety.

If you have one of the potentially affected fire blankets, you must not use it on any oil pan fire.

Please remove the fire blanket and return it to the retailer it was purchased from as soon as possible. Kidde Safety Europe Ltd will arrange for a compliant replacement fire blanket to be supplied to you which meets the British safety standard.

The potentially affected fire blankets are 1m x 1m in size. The fire blanket containers are labelled with the brand name “Kidde” or “Lifesaver” and are marked with the kitemark symbol. The Kitemark Licence Number 35021 is also displayed on the container where marked below. The label on the fire blanket refers to “Homesaver”.

These details can be found on the fire blanket containers as shown in photographs below.
