Product Recall - Peters of Kensington—Safe-T Designer Fire Extinguishers

Safe-T Mini Designer Fire ExtinguisherA few days ago, "Product Safety Recalls Australia" published a product recall on a range of fire extinguishers sold by "Peters of Kensington" a retailer of a range of Homeware, Fashion, Travel and assorted products.

The 'Designer' fire extinguishers in question were available in the following designs: classic, textile, pop, tag, and exclusive.

Due to the absence of safety labeling and the fire extinguishers not being coloured red as required by the mandatory standard, AS/NZS 1841.1:1997, the extinguishers fail to meet the requirements of Consumer Product Safety Standard No. 9 of 2004.

As the extinguishers are not coloured red, consumers may not be able to easily locate them in an emergency. Additionally, as the extinguishers are not marked with the required safety label, consumers may not be able to determine whether they are appropriate for the type of fire occurring. Incorrect use may increase the risk of serious burns or death.

The products were available for purchase between July 1, 2004 and December 24, 2014. Consumers should return the product to their place of purchase for a full refund.
