Product Recall: Safety issue with B&Q shower screens

8 July 2015

screen7 There's a safety notice issued by B&Q over their shower screens.

B&Q say: "Despite rigorous quality control procedures it has been brought to B&Q's attention that in some installations, hairline fractures have appeared in the plastic hinge brackets. This could potentially release the screen from the mounting bracket resulting in personal injury."

Basically, you don't want want of those coming loose, falling out and smashing everywhere and cutting up your beautiful flesh.

If you have purchased one of these products, you should - and these are B&Q's capslock - "STOP USING IT IMMEDIATELY" and contact the helpline. If you're in the UK, call 0300 303 4482 or, if you're in Ireland, ring 1800 946 327.

B&Q will arrange to send you replacement metal hinge brackets. Here's a big list of the screens in question.

    I wonder if "STOP USING IT IMMEDIATELY" means you should stop using it more immediately than just plain old "stop using it immediately"?

What do you think?
