NSW Fair Trading Commissioner Rod Stowe is warning consumers about two recent recalls that have been associated with fatalities and severe injuries.

He also warned consumers to check regularly on the Australian Government recall website at www.recalls.gov.au to help self-protect against goods found with major and life threatening faults.

“Consumers need to be safety conscious in the modern market and I recommend they make a habit of checking the recalls site to make sure products they have purchased are safe for use,” he said.

“These two recent recalls have been associated with fatalities and severe injuries, so it is very important consumers who may have purchased these products stop using them immediately.”
