Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service are bringing to local residents' attention the fact that certain older Bosch dishwashers are being recalled as they may be a potential fire hazard.

These are ones manufactured between 1999 and early 2005 for models purchased and used in the United Kingdom only. The affected dishwashers are in the batch number range from FD 7901 to FD 8504. Dishwashers which are outside the above batch number range are not affected.

One of the concerns is that people are not checking older dishwashers assuming the recall only applies to the latest models.
