The following notice has been issued by the retailer.


Space and Convector Heaters

Screwfix have been made aware that in some circumstances a very small number of products have shown excessive heat build-up in the plug, leading to scorching or deformation of the plug itself.

Despite rigorous quality control procedures, Screwfix has identified a potential safety issue with these electric heaters. Due to the potentially serious nature of the risk and our commitment to safety, we have taken a precautionary decision to recall these products and have already removed them from sale.
